Exploring The Space
In order to understand the fundamental views of the target group, I conducted focus groups with two groups of girls in Metro Atlanta schools. These conversations helped me form my research questions and narrow down critical themes to focus on throughout the study.
Perceptions of technology, computing, school, learning, classes, and self
Exposure x Interest in Computing
This was a key theme connected to the way the girls perceived themselves and the tech field. Exposure was deeply connected with their level of excitement and interest in pursuing tech related activities and studies.
