Women In Tech: Getting An Early Start

PrintStaten Island businessman Anthony Onesto is trying to use the power of animation to get more young girls interested in science. The “tech guru” is trying to raise $25,000 to produce the pilot episode of Ella the Engineer, which is specifically geared to get more young girls interested in science and engineering.

Ella is a female hero who solves problems using engineering and software. Think of her as a Bob the Builder for the information age.

“There’s never anyone with a computer science or software engineering background that was solving everyday problems,” Onesto said. “Given that most everyday objects now are either connected to the Internet or run by software, it seemed like the perfect time for this.” Article Continues…

Women in Tech: Celebrating Women’s History Month

Friday, March 21st, 2014 | Author:

PrintMarch is the month of St. Patrick’s Day, the start of spring, and when swimsuits are already sold out as a result of those who have been wistfully dreaming about spring break since December. But more importantly, March is also Women’s History Month. This celebration began in 1981 as “Women’s History Week,” and was designed to honor the generations of women who have made significant contributions to society. The event was changed to “Women’s History Month” in 1987 when Congress decided there were “way too many influential women to recognize in just one week!” (Okay, so that’s not the actual legislative text, but the correct sentiment is there).

As part of our ongoing “Women in Tech” blog series, we wanted to recognize influential women in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields, both past and present. Women have always made and will continue to make significant contributions to these fields. Our intention is that these short biographies will inspire those considering a STEM field to pursue their own passions. Article Continues…
