Carrying on for Adm. Hopper

Via The Code Project, Emily Goligowski surveys five programs designed to give girls and women an extra boost in technology training.

In 2008, girls made up just 17% of Advanced Placement test takers in computer science (the lowest percentage of any subject) and held less than 20% of CS degrees.

Too bad about the annoying widgets salted into the text of Mashable's pages; also, the demo for this article apparently skews female, so the ads are all about shoes.
