Have you heard of the Queen of Code

Wow, it's exciting to watch and hear the story of what an important role women played with computers and their beginnings. Please share this with your girls and let them know the accomplishments that Grace Hopper and many other women played.

They often referred to her as "Amazing Grace"


Sadly I don't like the idea that she was somehow responsible for solving the problem that enables the bomb and death of many,  but that is just one interpretation and she made many more accomplishments that should definitely be highlighted.

From Wikipedia- "She is credited with popularizing the term "debugging" for fixing computer glitches (inspired by an actual moth removed from the computer). "

Please check it out for yourself.
