Tech Is a Brown Girls Thing

When we think of tech in the U.S. - faces of Jobs, Gates and Zuckerberg materialize, but STEM learning is not just a white boys club. Native-born and raised Austinite, youth educator, technophile and drag enthusiast Gabryella Desporte talks about how Latina and other girls and teens are reclaiming technology for their own with a project that uses place, tech and storytelling to unearth community stories and the damage of gentrification.
