In episode #167 AJung Moon brings together three interviews relating to promoting the involvement of girls and women in robotics, and STEM generally. In the first interview, Hannah and Rachel Tipperman, a pair of seventeen year olds who are cofounders of Robot Springboard and its offshoot BrightStart Robotics, tell how they became involved in robotics and how they've gone on to make similar experiences available to others. Then, Ross Mead, a Ph.D student in computer science at USC shares his enthusiasm for engaging underrepresented populations in robotics, and how he became involved in this effort. Finally, Prof. Elizabeth Croft, founder of Westcoast Women in Engineering, Science, and Technology (WWEST) shares from her abundant experience as an engineer, an educator, and a professional leader.
