Concerns about the gender gap in science, technology, engineering, and math are increasing, especially among women of color. For example, women's participation in computer science careers has decreased since the 1980s. Women make up 20 percent of all programmers, and women make up 57 percent of undergraduates, but only 18 percent of computer science majors.
Here are some ways to keep girls engaged in coding;
👉Introduce girls to coding in middle school or grade school.
👉Create mentorship programs where girls can be mentored by successful programmers
👉Create coding clubs specifically for girls.
