I’m a TECH CORPS volunteer because I want to give back to the next generation and build a pipeline of girls and young women that are excited about technology and want to create and develop tools that we can’t even imagine right now. Getting them excited about technology also keeps me excited, I remember what it felt like to discover how computers work by seeing their faces light up when they have that moment of understanding. I want to keep learning so I can have that moment too. It warms me inside to see their pride in sharing a game they have created in Scratch or a robot built using Mindstorms. Their sense of accomplishment is mine as well. I had a hand in giving that girl a positive experience that might spark an interest in an area she might not have otherwise explored. That’s why I keep doing what I do year after year!
