Getting Girls Coding!

It is widely accepted that there is currently a massive disproportion of women to men choosing to follow careers in computer science.

“Since 1984, the number of computer science degrees awarded to women has steadily declined, and today only 13 percent of computer science graduates are female. Accordingly, top jobs in the field are male-dominated.” - The NY Times

Encouraging more young women to engage with technology is a core goal of CoderDojo.
