This young girl is into robotics and vice versa. Not by choice but she's quickly becoming an ambassador for prostheses.

This young lass Xyla may like robots. She assures you can "pick up the people that you're attracted to at the bar with your soldering skills".
And yes, her dress is a PCB.

I just read a book that I recommend everyone take the time to read, then buy a few copies (I bought 3) and give them away.
The book is
"Emmy in the Key of Code" by Aimee Lucido
, and it introduces the reader to some of the basic concepts of programming in a novel and engaging way. This is the kind of book you give a young person (female or male) to pique their interest, not to be their "first book on programming."
(recommendation background: My wife, whom I had almost convinced to start a new career as a software engineer after many years of teaching, instead went back to her first love, librarianship. As a youth librarian, she came across this book, read it, and then insisted I read it as well. Additionally, she's adding it to her Battle of the Books youth reading program, because it's that good. Also,
, this might be a somewhat unconventional book for Parallax to sell, but it definitely ties into your education mission. Make sure to take a look.)

I recently listened to an
Embedded FM podcast episode
where the author of that book, Aimee Lucido, was the guest.

We should make a fangirl out of Amy. She 3D printed a gripper and more! Jump to 3 minutes.
