Girls Go CyberStart Student Feedback

"Thank you so much for inspiring girls to explore careers in computer technology, as a girl aspiring to go into computer programming or a similar field, it really means a lot to me, as I am terrified of encountering sexism in this field of work. Also, even if girls choose not to go into a computer-related field, thank you for helping provide a fun challenge to us."
