Woo, first post! And it’s just going to be a bunch of links!
I may be talking to a group of home-schooled students and encourage them to consider STEM classes and careers, so I’m looking for resources on the ‘net that I can give them. I’m looking for varied sources, so we’ll see how successful I am.

Oh, I should look for college and high school scholarship and internship-type programs. Off the top of my head there’s Google’s Summer of Code and REUs.
I may want to show this awesome presentation by Terri Oda: http://www.slideshare.net/terriko/how-does-biology-explain-the-low-numbers-of-women-in-cs-hint-it-doesnt
That’s all I have for now. I’ll update this post as I find other resources.
