Cynthia Barnett wants girls to know how to write code, build robots and hack computer programs. Barnett is a lifelong educator from Norwalk, Connecticut.

As part of a settlement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the University of Connecticut has taken steps to ensure that its PCB waste will be properly disposed of in the future.

The university disposed of the waste containing polychlorinated biphenyls during a window replacement project. The EPA lists PCBs as probable carcinogens.
