Rakel Solvadottir

Founder & CEO at Skema (Iceland) and reKode (USA). I'm a computer engineer with a background in psychology, and bear the 2013 title "Nerd of the Year" in Iceland with pride. As the founder of reKode & Skema, an award-winning computer education program for children, I'm innovative developer of teaching through technology. To share my work and the importance of using innovative approaches in education, as well as the importance of women empowerment, I'm a frequent speaker at conferences both in Europe and the U.S., with appearances that include WITI, TEDx and SXSW Interactive. I'm also a proud member of class 2014 - Kaplan EdTech Accelerator powered by Techstars.
