June 2016: Caitlyn, Jada and Maddie

Meet Caitlyn, Jada and Maddie our superstar Student Spotlights! They are 2020 Girls who are passionate about making the most of every opportunity and women making strides in the STEM career field.

What made you want to join 2020 Girls

  • Caitlyn – It opens up a bunch of different career opportunities and I wanted to start building a resume for college.
  • Jada – I heard about the program and thought it would be really fun and different to do something unique.
  • Maddie – I thought that it would be really fun, and welcoming and different. You get to learn new things in your comfort zone with girls who are like you, plus you get to meet new people.

What’s been your favorite part of the 2020 Girls club so far?

  • Caitlyn – I really like the instructors. Most of them are younger or closer to our age, and you can connect with them on a different level. It’s easier to relate to them. They made it a lot more challenging and made you engaged by planning different activities.
  • Jada – I loved the Lego Robotics.  My friends and I made an acronym to name our robot and worked together to program it. It was my favorite part of the program.
  • Maddie – Everything

What’s the most important skill you believe you’ve learned so far?

  • Caitlyn –  I really like the empowering part of the program. Just because you’re a girl doesn’t mean that you can’t do something that males dominate. This program makes me feel like they won’t be dominating it for long.
  • Jada – How to program, and keep control. It’s amazing how much different this program is with just girls.
  • Maddie – Confidence. I feel really comfortable here, and I feel like I can do more things confidently that boys can do.

What will you do with your new skills over the summer?

  • Caitlyn – Expand them.
  • Jada – I plan to get into more classes.
  • Maddie – I want to get into more classes, meet new people and keep learning.
