Who says coding isn't for girls?

It's 2017. I'm not sure why, but I still keep hearing parents talk about how their girls could not possibly be interested in coding and robotics. They say, it is because, you know, it's all about cars and mechanics. 

Check out some of our super fun, creative, human-centred designs and tech projects.

Tech is not inherently masculine. It is neutral because it is a tool. It is a tool that can be used to create things from your imagination, whether you are into unicorns, ballerinas and cupcakes or skeletons, vehicles and monsters.
