Do you have a love for technology? We’re calling all girls who want to learn and develop a passion for computer science! Our Extraordinary Teen Pooja Chandrashekar is on a mission to get more girls involved in computer science and technology and today we are sharing her efforts!
Pooja noticed a big gender gap in her computer science classes, so after her sophomore year of high school she founded ProjectCSGIRLS to help close it. With the simple goal of encouraging more girls to develop a passion for technology, her nonprofit organization has grown to host the nation’s largest computer science competition for middle school girls and it organizes workshops and mentorships around the country!
