A new web-based show encourages young women to tune in and associate DIY less with bread making and more with breadboard wiring.
Created by Alison Lewis, a web designer and instructor at Parsons School of Design, Switch is a free online show connects young women with technology by guiding them through fashion and design projects.
Lewis said she hopes "to inspire people with design and to get young girls
thinking about how electronics are approachable and not so scary."
