I have been invited by Janice Greenwood to do a talk for UTK Girls and Technology Education (GATE) meeting. The title of my talk: The editor VI and bash scriptingThe event started at 8:30 where girls of 15 and 16 years old visited the HPC Summit/Titan.

It was followed by a series of lighting talks of 10 to 15 minutes. A range of topics were covered such as networking, operating system, software developer, security, programming and mobile devices.

They were also guided to do some programing first tasks during the afternoon.

As professional women we presented presented our challenges in an appointment. The personal side was included by  mothers and wife at ORNL. We all encouraged teenagers to follow a STEM career. I think it was so valuable to girls learn from first hand experienced professional women at ORNL. Here are some pictures of the presentations:

And here you can see me explaining the timeline of Linux, the different program languages and also Red Hat as the operating system mostly used in the administration of Linux field.

We had an excellent coffee break and thanks to my lovely college Rachel for her support:Here we have a group photo of the event with all the ladies in technology:
