#WikidGRRLs from start to now: a summary of how the project evolved

P1070215 hands on keyboardAfter finishing another successful semester of running the Wikid GRRLS project to teach online skills to teenage girls in Detroit Public Schools it is a good time to reflect on what the project and its team have accomplished. I wrote a brief summary of how Wikid GRRLS evolved over the years and how it transitioned from Maryland to Detroit.

Read about the history of the Wikid GRRLs project since its inception in 2012 at the University of Maryland where it received a seed grant from the Future of Information Alliance (FIA) and the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation.

While Wikid GRRLs is taking a hiatus over the next few semesters to publish results from the previous semesters and secure new funding, don’t hesitate to get in touch if you want to get involved. E-mail Stine Eckert at stine.eckert@wayne.edu with any inquiries.
