Abstract

Women are underrepresented in Computer Science (CS). Closing the gender gap in CS benefits the economy, gender equality and society. However, girls have low CS interest while interest energizes learning and guides career trajectories. We explore the effects of the user interface of Hedy, a graduate language which teaches the syntax of Python, on the development of CS interest in girls.
