I'm enjoying using repl.it with my students this semester. One of my challenges, however, is encouraging some women and BIPOC students to overcome stereotype threat in computing. Images such as the blond surfer dude robot that pops up every time we log into repl.it detracts from my ability to diversify the image of a computer scientist. Please see this space as an opportunity to break down stereotypes by replacing or removing this ad.
With appreciation,
