Spotlight: Chloë Smith

Each month we spotlight a woman or girl in tech who inspires us. This month we are highlighting Chloë Smith, a senior at Albemarle High School in the Math, Engineering, and Science Academy (MESA).

How do you work with technology today?
The main way that I work with technology in my day-to-day is in my geospatial technology class with James Madison University at my school. ‘Geospatial’ sounds like a scary word, but really it means using technology to create educational maps. We use Geographic Information System (GIS) programs to analyze data as it connects to maps. In the class, I have created maps on tracking Hurricane Katrina, Providing medical supplies to type 1 diabetics with low access to endocrinology, tracking the spread and impact of the Black Plague, etc. I have also used the software at home to make a missionary map for my church, and for projects in other classes (such as my Current Events in Nicaragua Spanish project). I am currently working on a map that analyzes the assistance to the Visually Impaired provided by my city. All of these maps are created with esri ArcGIS online and ArcMap on desktop.

What drives your interest in technology?
Technology is exciting. It can reach all over the world and connect people. It can cure diseases and change lives. It is the great frontier. It is a compilation of answers to whatever concoctions of questions a mind can produce. It is entrepreneurship and innovation. We can use technology to do almost anything. And the things that we cannot yet do, we can work to do it in the future. How could anyone not be interested in something so encompassing? Technology swallows up the world and beyond the world. I firmly believe that if you are interested in any single thing enough, then it will force you to become interested in the information that technology makes readily available, and will therefore force you to be interested in technology itself.

What do you remember about your first coding experience?
My first coding experience was a blur. I was in a class full of people who were on the robotics team or taking AP Computer Science. Because so many students were already familiar with coding, the teacher only touched on the basics of coding before sending us off on a project. I was lost for most of it. Being the worst at something stinks at first, but that is what gives you the drive to improve. I am still working on my coding skills, but I think that the fact that I am still working on them means that I will improve eventually.

What was your pathway to working in technology?
In eighth grade I was told that the Math, Engineering, and Science Academy (MESA) was located at my future school, Albemarle High School. I applied because the general idea of the academy was intriguing. I reasoned that because I love learning, and because I knew very little about engineering, it was about time that I dove into four years of getting the best education that I can and learning about engineering. This is how my real start in technology began. Sophomore year, I took AP Human Geography as an elective. I loved that class, so when I heard of a class that combined geography with technology, I thought that it was the perfect class for me to take. This is how my start in GIS began. I plan to take GIS 2 next year as well, and continue my pathway in technology through that and my MESA engineering classes.

Why is it important to get more girls and women interested in technology?
Girls are far more intelligent than one would be led to believe when investigating pay checks and jobs based on gender. Girls should have the ability to pursue whatever it is that they want. Not every girl wants to work in technology, but it is important to make technology a clear and feasible option.

Who inspires you to pursue your passion?
One women that inspires me to pursue my passion in Geospatial technology is Christina Boggs. She has excelled in GIS. She is on committees for multiple GIS enterprises and User groups. Most pertinent to me, and any other girl wanting to pursue a career in GIS, she is one of the leaders of WiGIS (Women in GIS). Sure, she is very skilled in the field, but she also does not seem self absorbed. She works to help women (and men) in GIS connect all over the world, and she helps to improve the industry as a whole. If I do end up in a GIS career, I hope that I can  make a greater impact as she does.

What most excites you about the future of technology?
Maybe this is selfish, but I am most excited for the cure to Type 1 Diabetes. I have had this disease for 14 years, and I am excited for it to lessen.

What advice would you give to your younger self?
I have thought about this question for a while now, but I cannot find an answer. I have many blunders that I could have avoided (like taking a study hall freshman year), but I firmly believe that all things work together for my good. I would look back on my younger self happily, even knowing everything that she will go through, because all of the things that she will go through will make her into me now.

🛰? 🐟🚜? The satellites that collect our imagery orbit at about 600–800 km (375–500 mi) above Earth’s surface. Their paths are synchronized to the Earth’s own rotation, so that they pass over any given point at the same time on each orbit, making for easier comparisons of imagery over days and years. Most imaging satellites pass overhead at about 10 in the morning. (Morning is best because clouds tend to form around midday in many humid climates.) Virtually all the satellite imagery that you see on maps is from the same hour-long window of mid-morning!

The satellites themselves are about the size of SUVs, with blue solar panel “wings” that swivel to face the sun. Because there’s no ground surface to brace against and dampen vibrations, satellites need sophisticated mechanisms to stabilize themselves and point at precisely the right patch of ground. One device they use is a type of flywheel called a reaction wheel. It stores rotational energy, so the main body of the satellite can turn around its axis by making the free-spinning wheel rotate faster or slower. Meanwhile, the satellite can orient itself with a combination of GPS, so it knows where it is in space, and star cameras, so it knows which way it’s facing.

What we’re looking at, however, is a fish farm. We know it looks like a satellite! In fact, it fooled us for a minute. But it’s actually a raft of 48 cage-like nets floating on either side of a houseboat-style shed on Krishna Raja Sagara, a hydropower reservoir in Karnataka, India. It’s a pilot project, meant to popularize fish farming in the region. As far as we know, looking like a satellite is just a happy accident.
