A free all-day workshop at UWindsor for girls in grades 9 and 10.
Saturday, November 25.
The number of women in computer science is related to culture and not nature.
At the high-school level, girls are equally talented for mathematics as boys for both simple and complex mathematical problems 
Internationally, 8th graders were compared in math tests and no relevant differences were found between girls and boys, but significant differences were found across countries 
Computer Sci Enrolment at UWindsor
In the USA, in 1984, 37% of computer science majors were women, but by 2014 that number had dropped to 18%.
Currently, 50% of the computer science students in India and Malaysia are women
