The Girls Who Code Speaker Series at Mineola Middle School featured different female speakers in coding/engineering-related fields serving as role models and explaining their careers to a group of fifth- through seventh-grade students. In a series held on Dec. 13, two Mineola graduates from 2005 were featured speakers – Michele Guido, a programmer Skyping from Germany, and Jessica Cox (formerly Napolitano), who is a data scientist. Each told of how they got to their current positions, as well as what their job entails. Students were able to ask them questions and even received guided feedback from the guests on current projects they were completing.
