Christine S.

Christine is passionate about the interdisciplinary nature of Computer Science, specifically the connection between technology and art to inspire social change. Her research on the psychological techniques embedded in application design and their social ramifications, presented at an annual state Speech and Debate competition, led her to receive a Governor’s Award in Arts Education. Being one of the few girls in her advanced STEM classes, Christine hopes to show girls the wonders of STEM from a young age to bridge the gender gap. Christine led a community program to teach young girls web-building skills including the programming languages HTML and CSS. As a recipient of her school’s Mathematics and Science Academic Achievement Awards, Christine also tutors students in her community in STEM subjects. She hopes to instill a love for STEM in young people around the world through her work with the Girls Advisory Board.
