Made with Code builds on our long-standing commitment to increasing diversity in Computer Science. Since 2010 we’ve invested $40 million in organizations like Code.org, Girls Who Code, NCWIT and Black Girls Code. We are committing an additional $50 million over the next three years to further these efforts.
Made with Code is to encourage young women in their teens to lead in the companies, labs, research, creative arts, design, organizations, and boardrooms that make technology happen.
Computer Science can make the world more beautiful, more usable, more safe, more kind, more innovative, more healthy, and more funny, but we need to help more teen girls find relevant ways to interact with it. Along with our coalition of supporters, we’re making it our mission to creatively engage teen girls with code.
Projects are designed to be easy on-ramps to coding while creating something cool that you can use, share, and show off. Projects are designed to be creative, fun, and immediately rewarding. These are early building blocks that can start to prepare you for future code learning.
We started Made with Code because increasingly more aspects in our lives are powered by technology, yet women aren’t represented in the roles that make technology happen.
If we can inspire teen girls to see that code can help them pursue their passions, whatever they may be, then hopefully they will begin to contribute their voices to the field of technology for the benefit of us all.
