Can girls fix computers?

hplogofacebook2012HP have a great onsite warranty scheme. If your computer breaks, they a technician to fix on onsite. It’s a great service.

A few times now I’ve had a young lady from India fix machines from me. She breaks a bunch of stereotypes. She’s a very competent woman who fixes computers.

She came today while I was teaching my year 8s. I needed to have work her in my classroom, so she disassembled three laptops alongside my students. It had a profound impact on the girls in the room. Seeing a young woman do what is generally regarded as mens’ work.
