Robotics as an Invitation to Girls Into Computer Science and Engineering

Iguana Robotics:

Since this study, Iguana has conducted many classroom and informal learning studies that offered the same conclusion. Students love robots and girls particularly seem motivated by them. The creative possibilities and interactive qualities of a robot are very appealing to young women. This motivation could lead more young women into the male-dominated fields of computer science and engineering.
