    You know. For cooking & baking stuff. :)

  • And motivation of their men.
  • Wait a minute! I am a female and I love burning stuff and blowing stuff up!
    Though I have been accused of being a weirdo at times. Mostly by other women.
    What I like about FIRST is those girls seem to understand. FIRST and STEM are the
    best things to have happened in our schools. Not only are the kids happily engaged in
    active learning it is bringing a much better mix of kids together!

  • Add one more girl.

    11-year-old Gitanjali Rao won this year's Discovery Education and 3M Young Scientist Challenge.
    Her winning invention was a sensor that can more accurately detect lead levels in water compared to current methods.

  • Met this tenth-grade girl briefly at Maker Faire, but didn't see her exhibit. Just checked out her website, WOW. She's a ball of energy. Watch out for hot Coco! She'll give Ladyada a run for her money in a few years!
