Above is a line from the landing video of the new Google initiative, Made w/ Code, appeals to young women to consider what they can do by studying computer science. Created by Google, along with a collection of strong women’s rights activists ranging from Chelsea Clinton and Mindy Kaling to Girls Inc., the video, the initiative, and the activities on the site are compelling and creative. The basis for this project stems from a lack of female representatives currently participating in the computer science field. In fact it’s reported that only 1% of high school girls are interested in pursuing a computer science degree and only 12% of computer science graduates are women.
