Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "Her Code Got Humans On The Moon — And Invented Software Itself" by Robert McMillan.

In the informational text “Her Code Got Humans On The Moon — And Invented Software Itself,” Robert McMillan discusses the software engineer Margaret Hamilton who worked on the Apollo space program.
