MADE WITH CODE is a new initiative designed to inspire millions of girls to write their own future with code.

Coding is the new literacy and gives you great power to create, innovate and quite literally change the world, but surprisingly few girls (<1% of high school girls) see computer science as part of their future.

Google, along with supporters, including Chelsea Clinton, Girls Inc., Girl Scouts of the USA, TechCrunch, Seventeen, Mindy Kaling, MIT Media Lab and National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT), announced the Made with Code initiative on June 19, 2014 with a launch event that included a special presentation, performances by Icona Pop and iLuminate, and more, with over 150 girls from local NYC clubs (including Girl Scouts of the USA, Girls Inc., Girls Who Code, Black Girls Code) in attendance.
