Made with Code
Did you know that only 22 percent of California students taking the AP exam in computer science are girls? Similarly, only 13 percent of computer science bachelor's degrees and 10 percent of technology degrees are earned by women.
Made with Code aims to change the way girls of all ages think about coding, and inspire them to consider careers in computer science. The program includes:
- A new site where girls can try Blockly-based coding projects like learning to create animated GIFs and building beats for a music track.
- A directory where volunteers, girls, and their parents can find additional coding resources and opportunities, such as camps and clubs.
- Video profiles of girls and women who are using computer science in new and exciting ways.
- Sounds super-duper awesome, huh? Get started now!
