Maya Espinel & Lucy Hartigan: proving age is just a number.
Meet Maya and Lucy, two middle school coders from New Jersey. These girls not only have big aspirations – a professional soccer player and a star on Broadway – but have also already started using their knowledge of technology to help change the world!
After hearing about the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, Maya and Lucy wanted to help. They built a website, “Get The Lead Out,” to educate middle and high school students about lead poisoning and how to prevent it. They hope to take a trip to Flint to interview those affected by the water crisis and help bring awareness to the problem.
