These are the Women in Tech

A few weeks back a well done infographic came out highlighting the gender gap with girls in science and engineering.

While true and disheartening, Bots High highlights the little number – the small percentage of girls who study science in high school, build robots, and go off to major in engineering at MIT or Duke. Hopefully as more girls see other girls building robots, they’ll realize they can do it too.

So using some of the statistics, and finding some gems in old films, I put together some videos highlighting these statistics and countering it with footage of girls in action in Bots High.

The three are below. I hope you enjoy.
