Heather Mendonsa

In February, four girls from Spanish Fork Junior High traveled to Dell EMC in Draper to attend a kickoff event for a club called, "Girls Who Code." This event was attended by students in grades six through twelve from around the state of Utah. Reshma Saujani, the mastermind behind the program and author of the book Girls Who Code, spoke to the group about the importance of technology and how to solve problems in our day-to-day lives. She explained that this field is growing with limitless possibilities, but many girls do not realize their potential in this area.
