Girl Geek Academy, founded by a group of women who were sick of the “beer, pizza and basement” ethos of technology spaces dominated by men, has an ambitious aim.
It wants to teach one million women to learn technology by 2025.
Now, it has partnered with Penguin to publish a series of books aimed at girls aged eight to 12 to show how technology, relationships and friendships can be a creative force.
Author Alex Miles and Girl Geek Academy’s Sarah Moran, chat about the idea behind the series and how more girls can be encouraged to explore, and stay, in tech.
