Girls Who Code

Girls Who Code is a new movement working to educate, inspire and equip 13- to 17-year-old girls with the skills and resources to pursue opportunities in technology and engineering. Their idea is similar to Code Club which I posted about couple of days ago except their efforts are geared specifically towards teenage girls. “The numbers speak for themselves. By 2018, there will be 1.4 million computer science-related job openings, yet U.S. universities are expected to produce enough computer science graduates to fill just 29% of these jobs. And while 57% of bachelor’s degrees are obtained by women, less than 14% of computer science degrees are awarded to women.” Please visit their website www.girlswhocode.com and follow them on Twitter @GirlsWhoCode to help spread the word about their efforts.
