Cap Female Students Participate in Google's "Made with Code" Event

Earlier in the month, Google hosted its first “Made with Code” event at its YouTube campus in San Bruno. Designed to inspire creativity and excite young women about the possibilities of technology, a large contingency of girls from Capuchino High School participated. The emphasis of the event was on motivating girls’ curiosity and to encourage them to explore the countless possibilities of what they can do with code. Though code is at the center of our lives today, young women are not equally represented in the creation of these technologies. Kudos to the female students at Cap who participated in this event and are looking to increase the number of women who will create new technologies in the future.
