Red Lake students meet Chelsea Clinton
A BSU staff member and two high school students from Red Lake met with Chelsea Clinton at a signing of her new book, "It's Your World," on Friday in St. Paul.
Clinton's book includes a mention of Girls Who Code, a nonprofit program meant to inspire high-school aged girls to learn computing and coding skills and, ultimately, increase the number of women working in high-tech professions. The book specifically mentions the Northern Minnesota Girls Who Code chapter organized in fall 2014 by Jennifer Theisen, a programmer in BSU's programming, networking and servers office. Two of the club's members from Red Lake, Alise May, a 16-year-old high school junior, and Diamond Cloud-Sayers, a 12-year-old seventh-grader, have used what they learned at the club to create an app called Ojibwe Helper. Their app, which helps teach the Ojibwe language, is featured in Clinton's book. (Submitted photo)
