November 2018: Rapoport teaches Middle School girls to program
Dana Rapoport, Edmond J. Safra MSc student (Pupko's lab, Life Sciences), is volunteering in QueenB program, teaching programming to girls in the eighth grade.
QueenB is a non-profit organization founded by computer science students in order to give girls and women confidence in their own abilities. Its main activity is a mentorship and training program where computer science students teach middle-school students to write a code. The ultimate goal of the program is to increase the presence of Israeli women in the technology industry.
Dana meets weekly with the students at TAU, and teaches them how to program, and how to build an application for an operating system. Teaching is done in a positive and non-competitive atmosphere.
