Made with Code, Google’s project to help encourage girls’ love for science and technology has launched a new learning experiment: Emojify.
The new project lets girls code their own Xmas/festive creative emoji using a menue based coding frame.
Made with Code project initiatives are based upon four facts:
1.- Just in the United States, 74% of girls and teen girls express interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) in middle school.
2.- By high school, only 0.3% of teen girls plan to major in Computer Science.
3.- CS jobs will be the highest-paying sectors over the next decade, paying almost $15K more than average.
4.- Encouragement from adults and peers is the #1 contributor to a teen girl’s decision to pursue Computer Science
