An initiative from Google called Made With Code is encouraging young girls to learn computer coding. Through a partnership with Shapeway, Google is using custom 3D printed bracelets among other projects to spark girls' interest in programming and inspire the next generation of women in tech.

While other youth oriented coding programs exist, none are really targeted towards young girls. Google is hoping to make the tech industry more diverse by having more women in the workforce. This is particularly timely given Google's recently released diversity report that found male employees greatly outweigh the number of females working at Google.

Made With Code not only inspires, it also celebrates women in tech and shows how programming can be used to make incredible things. Stats for Girl-Targeted Coding Campaigns Trending: Older & Mild
