Girls Who Code‘s single mission is to close the gender gap in technology. After you check out the amazing things they do, flip through Reshma’s five picks, in her own words, for apps, sites, and games that illustrate gender gaps in tech and encourage girls to engage in the STEM fields.
“Alice Brooks and Bettina Chen saw that girls’ toys were lagging behind in the development of spatial skills, hands-on problem solving skills, and confidence with technology. Roominate brings a unique blend of building, circuits, design, crafts, storytelling, and creativity teaches kids while they play.”
“I am so inspired by our girls and the projects they create in our programs. GapJumper is one of those projects that really hits home why it’s so important that the people who are using our products are building our products. Gap Jumper is a game that illustrates the wage gap between the genders and different ethnicities. Warning: It’s pretty addicting!”
