The gender gap between men and women in STEM related fields.
A Peacemaking Project by Sowmya P.
What is the injustice we are solving?
Specifically in the computer science field, there is a lack of female representation in part because young women are not traditionally encouraged to take part in STEM related activities and are set back by extreme stereotypes in male dominated fields
Hackathon & Tech TripsSowmya P. 31 December 1969 19:00 The team of ImpactCS wants to create a program that gives students in the greater NYC area a chance to learn more about tech culture and industry. We are currently working to arrange field trips in late June 2017 and a 12 hour hackathon in early September 2017. We hope these opportunities will provide our students with a better perspective on tech culture, and will aid them in finding their own spot in the tech industry.

How did your field trips and hackathons work out? I am working on projects on NYC STEM as well.
