Hacking Princess Culture: Girls, Games, & Science

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As we work to support women in technology, it’s essential that we provide inspiration and role models for the youngest generations to aspire to the sciences. There's much celebration that girls make up 47% of gamers, but if all of the games and TV they see are focused on princesses, make-up, and pink, how can we inspire girls to do more than wait for prince charming? Join us for a conversation about young girls and the sciences, as we consider what they watch on TV, what games they play, and what toys are on their shelves. More importantly, we will discuss what COULD be happening in each of those spaces to inspire the next crop of programmers, engineers, problem solvers, and critical thinkers.
This SXSW Gaming Session at the Long Center is FREE and open to the public. However SXSW Interactive, Film, Gold and Platinum badges gain priority seating.
