The STEMM Role Models project is being developed openly on GitHub and Kirstie was keen to encourage everyone to share their expertise. “If you can criticise a website, find typos, broken links, non-intuitive design, then you can contribute! And if you want to work on search optimisation, database design and simply spreading the word we would love to have you help drive the project forwards. Check out our guide for contributors for more information.”
On 2nd and 3rd June, Kirstie will be leading a satellite site (at UC Berkeley) of Mozilla Science Lab’s 2016 Global Sprint. Over these two days people from around the world will contribute to tens of open source projects. If you’re in the UK and want to spend a little time in one of the evenings, Kirstie will be broadcasting live from California and mentoring anyone who wants to get involved.
Once again, many congratulations to Kirstie and the STEMM Role Models team!
