It worked out really, really well.”. The autism-friendly show isn’t a first for West Valley Light Opera either.

“I’m proud to see JLPA-MP focusing on girls in STEM and working with Technovation to bring mobile app development and entrepreneurship education to more girls in our community,” said Samantha Quist, JLPA-MP member and former Technovation executive director, in an email statement. Studies have shown that only 18 percent of computer science majors are women (a decrease of 35 percent of computer science graduates in 1985) and an estimated 7 percent of technology entrepreneurs are women. The goal of JLPA-MP and Technovation is to improve the ratio of women in computer sciences and entrepreneurship by providing education and training to young women in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.
