Minnesota Tech Champion Rebecca Schatz Has Passed Away



Rebecca Schatz, founder of The Works Museum and CodeSavvy, left earth this week.

Rebecca was a pure force of good in the Minnesota tech community, touching so many of all ages.  Her involvement with Coder Dojo Twin Cities and TechnovationMN has created some of the most effective nonprofit STEM development programming statewide [donate]. Rebecca’s legacy will be honored by new CodeSavvy Executive Director Jean Weiss. May her physical presence be missed and her spirit embraced.
