When Purba Majumder started in the field of computer software programming, she was often the only woman on the team.
Now that she is the owner and president of the information technology company Cybervation Inc., she is eager to introduce more girls to the science, technology, engineering and math fields. Working with Dublin Entrepreneurial Center and the city of Dublin, Majumder launched CoolTechGirls. The nonprofit offers girls in fourth through 12th grades opportunities to learn about various STEM jobs and interact with female professionals in those industries. The program offers two- to three-hour sessions on STEM topics ranging from robotics to social media, she said. CoolTechGirls also has organized STEM programs for the Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland.
