appsForGirls aims to lessen the gender gap in tech by targeting girls to go into computer science at a young age. The low numbers of females taking computer science classes in high school, majoring in computer science in college, and working in a computer science related field are largely due to stereotypes, misconceptions of what CS is really about, and lack of encouragement towards girls to go into STEM. appsForGirls works to change this by giving girls a cool introduction to tech through app development in a supportive environment, using a personalized CS+X curriculum, heavily exploring the power of females in tech, and supplying them the resources and confidence they need to continue.
