Coding: Girls’ Edition

Hour of Code is quickly approaching. However, coding opportunities should not be limited to once a year. They should be made available at all points in the year. They should also target girls. As girls progress through school, their numbers diminish in the computer science field. By the time they enter the work force, very few are represented. With computer science jobs expected to rise to numbers we are not ready to fulfill, it’s more crucial than ever to encourage girls to enter the field.

Think of the awesome innovations we could create if A) all computer science jobs were filled and B) if there was diversity in the voices represented.

To help get the momentum going, I’ve organized some of my favorite girls’ organizations and computer science programs aimed at girls into one presentation. Check out fennovation.org for more STEAM resources. Enjoy and happy Thanksgiving break!
