12 reasons why empowering women should be the world’s top priority

1. Women start small businesses faster than men. 

From home-based micro-businesses to small startups and shops, women will create over half of the 9.72 million new small-business jobs Forbes is predicting we’ll have by 2018. Not only are women creating more jobs, the National Federation for Independent Businesses says women-owned small businesses weather recessions more effectively and show more adaptability than men-owned small businesses.

Promo video for I, Too, Am Harvard made by Ahsante Bean, Harvard College Class of 2015

So how do teachers prepare students to attend colleges like Harvard when they currently attend middle schools where 100% of them receive free breakfast and lunch? We can start by showing this video and having real discussion. You won’t find this on any state’s standardized test or common core standard.

We love this made-for-kids series of videos, Circuit Playgroundby MIT engineer and Adafruit Founder Limor Fried (in the pink hair) and her robot friend ADABOT. For this excellent DIY project — and to find out what’s going on inside of the batteries that you use — get some lemons, pennies, galvanized nails, some aligator clips, and an LED, then watch their second video in the series, B is for Battery.

And if you missed it, watch A is for Ampere.

Cool video for science teachers or maker fans.

We won at NYC BigApps!

Also, in addition to our newly-released update, we have exciting news. Last night, Hopscotch won top prize ($20K!) at the NYC BigApps awards ceremony for Best Lifelong Learning App! We are honored to share the spotlight with other great apps including HealthyOut, ChildCareDesk, Helping Hands, Hired in NY, SolarList, and Poncho.

We even got to meet Mayor Bloomberg (who Jocelyn is a big fan of)! The excitement was too blinding for him.

Congrats to Hopscotch for the win from @CoderDojo_Orl & @inner_potential our kids love it.
