Women make up less than a quarter of game developers, and girls are less likely than boys to pursue coding as a career. Google is working to change that — and Wonder Woman is on board.
Made with Code, the company’s initiative to get teenage girls inspired about coding and ready to become the next-generation tech workforce, has released an interactive coding project with Warner Bros. in conjunction with the premiere of Wonder Woman’s first feature film. The program takes girls through three scenes from the movie, dragging and dropping items, actions and other variables to create a unique sequence of events they can see play out when they’re done.
Hopefully by showing girls that coding and programming are for them too, they’ll become a stronger force in tech and break their own barriers — just like Wonder Woman.
