Maureen designed and created fashion accessories called “illumicize” that progressively light up in response to increases in heart rate, measured by a pulse sensor. She then went on to host a series of Catwalk Coding camps, an instructional course designed to attract low-income girls to STEM fields.

The girls learned both electrical and coding skills from women in STEM fields.
