The First of Many Photos of Decks in Classrooms. Thanks to You.
A lot of the free decks going to teachers arrived on Monday and shortly afterwards, photos of the decks in use began to flood my inbox.
But before I show you the photos, remember: every one of you who bought a deck or a poster helped get decks to nearly 100 educators because profits rolled over. Your generosity is why these students are going to know about ENIAC women, about Katherine Johnson, about Maria Klawe and Lixia Zhang. Keep that in mind and be proud.
Here are the pictures, followed by a quote from the educator who took them. All images are by permission:
When Susan, Katy and I talked about the mission of this project, we decided we wanted decks to go where they could help the most: the homes of women in computing and those who stand beside them; classrooms full of aspiring young women in computing and those who may one day step up beside them. We wanted to honor the history of women in computing but treat it as fun and exciting as it truly is. If the pictures above are a hint, I think we succeeded.
That is all because of you. Thank you.
