Teach Girls Bravery Not Perfection
This week we watched an discussed a TED talk by Reshma Saujanic, founder of Girls Who Code. She contends most parents raise their girls to be perfectionists and their boys to be brave.  This conditioning makes girls overly cautious.  She stated Girls Who Code to over come the conditioning. The 12 minute video is below and available at here.
 
 
Club Enjoys Night Out
 
The club gathered at the Hawks Nest in Benton Harbor for fellowship and brief updates on various topics. 
  • Bryan Tutton reported the Bed Race plans are moving forward.  He also pointed to the flowers around town.  This is the result of Bryan's work with local business and the First Church of God.  Bryan also mentions tilling five gardens around time.
  • Dave Bly reported the fundraising events are on track for the fall.  Sponsors will be asked to shift their support from the 5K to other events. Dave also reported that the club's foundation will review grant applications next week.
