Secret Code: Special Release
Back in December, we introduced you to Mara Lecocq, creator and author of Secret Code. Lecocq created Secret Code for a few reasons, two of which being: she wanted to help with the problem of diversity in technology and leadership and she wanted to create a book that showed young girls of all colors, shapes, and sizes, role models that they could relate to.
She Did It - Ada Lovelace
Happy Ada Lovelace Day! Without this amazing woman, you wouldn’t be reading this—that’s right, her achievement as the world’s first computer programmer is often credited to Charles Babbage, but, no, she did it. That’s a huge deal, and so our new segment, She Did It, the superpowered team up of Geek Girl Riot and La Femme Collective, are celebrating this special day by telling you everything you need to know about this genius mathematician. Hit play and get inspired!
