Encouraging girls, intro

Our local middle school holds a Woman and Technology conference every  
year. I participated the first year and set up a NeXT computer, examples  
of the net, opened some apps. Lots of Moms attended, but the girls sat  
down, took over and had a ball. I now have the ability to set up a slip  
connection and demo Mosaic live. Think I'll put that on my calender,  
thanks to this prompt. If you are interested in contacting this school  
before summer break, email me. If anyone else has an opportunity to  
participate in this sort of thing I can recommend it highly, just call  
your local district or the head of the HS Science Dept. My husband gave a  
presentation to an AP biology class several years ago and one student, now  
heading toward med school, is doing an internship with him this summer.  
This type of thing pays off.
