Lesley Chilcott (firstname.lastname@example.org) asked me to share this:
In Codegirl I follow high-school aged girls from around the world as they have three months to design a mobile app that solves a problem in their community. Six finalists get to go to World Pitch Night in San Francisco, CA for a chance to win $10,000. But, for most, it's not about the winning.
Codegirl is about many things, empowering girls through technology is one of them. Capturing the moment when they realize their potential to make their mark on the world is another. It's also a story that dispels myths. Learning code or creating new technology is not sitting alone in a darkened basement typing. It's also not the hardest thing in the world. It's not only for geniuses. And it's not just for boys.
The film directly speaks to the lack of women in tech fields and shows amazing high school girls for many countries who learn how to solve real world problems using technology.
We've partnered with Mashable to be their first movie and it's showing on Mashable's website and through their Apple TV app for the next three weeks – see: http://mashable.com/2016/01/07/codegirl-mashable/#GT13z_nMQiqi
