Girls Who Code makes its way into a mobile game
from Tech Crunch
A major factor that deters girls from pursuing computer science is the perception that coders are mostly white and male, according to a recent Google-commissioned Gallup survey. That's why non-profit organization Girls Who Code has partnered with mobile game-maker Pixelberry Studios to tell the story of a young girl coder in its flagship game, "High School Story." The coder, named Gabriela, will be the first tech-related character featured in "High School Story," a game that over 30 percent of high school girls in the U.S. have played, according to Pixelberry.
