BrainCandyLabs is an initiative sponsored by Women in Technology International (WITI), anchored in serving girls age 8 through 18. We’re on a mission to increase awareness in careers in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) through real time, interactive learning. Our mission is simple. To create one million acts of curiosity to design the future. On June 23 and 24, BrainCandyLabs is launching a virtual webinar experience in parallel with WITI’s (Women in Technology International) Virtual Summit.

Jade makes science videos about math, physics, and computer science. In her experience, she has found that a lot of people find these particular areas of science quite hard and unrelatable, so it is her mission to make them easy and relatable! Jade not only finds these subjects cool, but also very important, and she would hate for people to miss out on them just because they have not been exposed in the right way. You can find Jade over on her YouTube Channel, Up and Atom.
