This post is all from Geek Mommy who loves Geek Daddy!

I love to hear stories about girls making a difference in technology.  I think these stories are important because it’s going to empower and inspire more girls to get involved in projects like this.

Girls App for Blind with Border

Congratulations to a group of six grade school girls from Los Fresnos, Texas who took it upon themselves to solve a problem for blind kids. With the help of MIT Media Lab, the girls build an app to help them navigate their way around school. The girls won the Verizon Innovative App Challenge and were recently whisked away to meet President Obama, Bill Nye the Science Guy and Kari Byron from MythBusters for their efforts.
