Okay, so I discovered the trailer for Code Girl while browsing YouTube and decided I wanted to learn more about it. The trailer tells the story of the 5,000 girls from 60 countries who were tasked with the challenge of creating an app that would tackle a problem from the ground up. My search lead me to the site for Code Girl, which allowed me to discover the main site that I’m sharing with you today, Made with Code.
Did you know that that only 1% of girls study Computer Science? Made with Code is Google’s initiative to get more girls into coding. On the site you can see the Projects that have already been completed, learn about Mentors, learn About the project, and even check out the site’s video on the topic.
I also really love that they have a Resource section where you can learn more about where you can learn to code at like Code Academy, Scratch, and Code Studio. They also have links to help girls find computer science clubs and activities.
If you know a girl who might like to learn to code this is an awesome site to share with them!
