Google managers visit fourth grade during Computer Science Education Week

Google managers visit fourth grade during Computer Science Education Week

Building the future of computing, one Stuart girl at a time!

In recognition of Computer Science Education Week (December 4-10), fourth graders had an opportunity to learn from two managers at Google, Kinjal and Dana, who have volunteered their time specifically to help inspire students and promote equity in computer science. 
During the visit, our guests facilitated a grade appropriate lesson to explore future opportunities in computer science and answer students’ questions. The girls asked great questions and made connections from the topics presented to their coding classes with Cathy Hamm, Stuart's systems and database administrator. 

About our guests: 
Kinjal: I am a technical program manager with the Technology Infrastructure Planning and Strategy team. My career has revolved around datacenters and analytics. I  love technology and problem solving. Space travel is something that excites me the most. I have been with Google for 1 year now. I am very excited to introduce the world of computer science to the next upcoming engineers.

Dana: I'm a program manager based in New Jersey, and I have been working at Google for almost 2 years. My background is in program management, so I don't need to be a coding wizard, but I do know how to get things done with people in a structured way. I'm volunteering here because I recently started learning to code, and I'm excited to keep expanding my knowledge. Along the way, I've realized that coding is something anyone can learn, and it's a great way to develop problem-solving and tech skills.
