Tech Project Aims to Get Girls Interested in Computer Science

With fewer than one percent of high school girls expressing interest in majoring in computer science, Google and several partners in the tech industry and elsewhere launched a new project Thursday that aims to get girls into tech. The project, dubbed "Made with Code" will familiarize young girls and women with coding and 3-D printing. Google and Yahoo released diversity reports recently that showed their employees are overwhelmingly male. Seventy percent of Google staffers are men, as are 62 percent of Yahoo staffers.
