ENIAC Programmers Project
During her undergraduate career Kathy Kleiman heard about the female ENIAC programmers, which inspired extensive research and writing on the topic. She attended ENIAC's 40th anniversary and met the programmers personally. Kleiman felt the need to tell the untold story of the six women who programmed ENIAC, the first all-electronic, programmable computer; thus, she founded the ENIAC Programmers Project. She is working to make a full feature documentary about these women.
She says "I'd like to let women and men and girls and boys know that computing is not just for geeks, that amazingly interesting, bright, creative women were the first programmers, and that the industry still needs amazingly interesting, bright, creative people".
