The platform of No Gender Gap! contains several modulated courses even for beginners and for each group of topics the life of a woman who has contributed to the development of that subject is presented. From Hildegard of Bingen, author of cosmology and medicine to Edith Clarke (1883 – 1959), the first woman to work as an electrical engineer in the USA. Among the computer women, the so-called ENIAC Girls – Ruth Lichterman, Kay MacNutly, Betty Jennings, Betty Snyder, Marlyn Wescoff, and Fran Bilas, six women, to whom we owe the programming of ENIAC, the first electronic computer in history to be complete Turing.
