{ object.primary_image.title }}

As the coronavirus pandemic rages on, schools would be wise to take the classroom outdoors. The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted the education of at least 1.5 billion school students. That’s more than 90% of the world’s children. Although many schools in the west, along with private schools in the developing world, have continued some school activities online, more than 50% of learners worldwide do not have a household computer. The absence of face-to-face learning and opportunities for playing with friends will hugely impact child mental health. Read Full Story

Throughout middle school, I tinkered with wiring and welding and electronics (as you can see by the piles of unused Arduino boards and leftover electronics in my room).

This crisis has let us be more honest about the private juggling that parents do. I’m hopeful that this will reduce some of the sexist messaging so many women receive. I’ve always considered myself a planner, but during this period of social distancing, my brain is in overdrive. The next business trip, the next big work event, and my daughter’s fifth-grade graduation are all completely up in the air. I can’t allow myself to think ahead to the excitement of her starting a new school in the fall, and I can’t give my team a solid direction on what to plan for three or six months from now. We simply don’t know. Read Full Story

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The CEO of Reboot Representation observes that as COVID-19 makes the lives of late high school and early college students uncertain, young women of color working toward a career in tech are facing a steeper uphill battle.
