Made with Code - Google

Made with Code - Google | Teaching and Learning in The Clouds | Scoop.it

"We started Made with Code because even though increasingly more aspects in our lives are powered by technology, women aren’t represented in the companies, labs, research, creative arts, design, organizations, and boardrooms that make technology happen.

 

If girls are inspired to see that Computer Science can make the world more beautiful, more usable, more safe, more kind, more innovative, more healthy, and more funny, then hopefully they will begin to contribute their essential voices. As parents, teachers, organizations, and companies we’re making it our mission to creatively engage girls with code.

 

Today, less than 1% of girls are majoring in CS.

 

Tomorrow, we can make that number go up."
