Erin Reilly, Executive Director, Platform Shoes Forum, General Excellence Award

Listen and learn (MP3, 20MB) about Erin Reilly’s award-winning online educational community, Zoey’s Room (ZR) – why it began, what it is, and where it’s going!

Created by Erin Reilly and Vinitha Nair, Zoeysroom.com encourages girls ages 10-14 to increase and expand their interest and knowledge of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The ZR Web site is centered around Zoey, a multi-cultural animated avatar, who chats with ZR members every day after school, encouraging them to participate in ZR Tec-Treks and to become role models like ZR’s “Fab Females.”

From a family of educators, Reilly grew up talking about the education system and how to improve it. By utilizing her multi-media background to help create Zoey’s Room, Erin has already helped improve the lives of hundreds of girls.
