Course Instructors:

Hello, I'm Grace! I'm originally from Austin, and in my free time you can find me backpacking, reading, or hopefully swimming in a lake. I'm a senior, and this is my fifth semester working with DECtech. I'm a Computer Science major, and I love teaching and being around kids. I've previously worked on the Robotics, App Development, Bootstrap, and Python camps. I also helped with a ton of virtual STEM camps we held over the summer of 2020!

Katelyn Photo Katelyn is a senior studying Computer Science with a focus in Data Science. This is her 3rd year working for DECtech and her first year as an instructor. She hopes to inspire girls and help them see all of the opportunities available in STEM!
