This is a very important issue nowadays and a lot of studies are being carried out to try to come up with a solution about why a lot of women are abandoning computer science careers. As Katie Lepi said, “I think that girl`s perceptions are what keeps them back”! They think it is a boy`s job or the nerd factor associated to computing by many young students—which is a wrong mentality and needs to be changes! We as future teachers should do our best to encourage girls to pursue their career in computer science, by encouraging and motivate them, become their role models, provide immediate feedback, praise their efforts and their abilities and helping them to start believing more in themselves.
