have you see the new educators section with the skill badges we are working on?http://www.adafruit.com/educators
as far as a role model, limor works with schools, parents, workshops, holds weekly videos, publishes tutorials and she was recently on the cover of WIRED. at least once a day a kid or a parent emails and says "thanks for provided a great role model for my: daughter, sister, niece, granddaughter....".
we are actively trying to convince the girl scouts to adopt our electronic skills badge idea (you can search our blog about this):http://www.adafruit.com/blog?s=girlscouts
we have a lot of work to do, what efforts could you assist us with? what other things can we do?
