TECHdotMN TV: Women in Computing | Kirsi Kuutti

by The TECHdotMN Team


In January, Advance IT Minnesota announced the winners of the first ever statewide Minnesota Aspirations for Women in Computing Award.

Six winners and five runners up from across the state were selected based on their interests, accomplishments, and community involvement in computing and technology, as well as for their aspirations in computing and technology-related fields.

We recently attended a recognition and awards ceremony at Unisys and spoke with winner Kirsi Kuutti, a senior Duluth East High School.  Kirsi will be majoring in electrical engineering and is interning with NASA over the summer.  Following her interview is a short conversation with Katie Bedney from the Association for Women in Computing — Twin Cities, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting the advancement of women in computing professions.

Special thanks to Maverick Software Consulting for sponsoring this interview and supporting Kirsi’s accomplishment!

    Wow, Kirsi is a rockstar. Super jealous she’s spending the summer at NASA.
