Cyndi Reitmeyer of BostonTechMom
When Cyndi Reitmeyer’s young daughter started showing an interest in tech, Reitmeyer took a deep dive into all the activities and opportunities she could provide to her. As a business professional who works with tech startups, she knew how important fostering these interests early would be. But it took her a while to locate all the best age-appropriate activities. There was a lot to sort through, but in the process, Reitmeyer became a pro.
In 2014, she launched BostonTechMom with all of her discoveries. If you dig a little you will you find projects you can do at home, but the site primarily features local opportunities for STEM-interestested kids in the Boston area, including events over the summer.
