about rubygirl
Rubygirl is an interactive, animated superhero comic featuring Ruby, Java, and Cici, a trio of girls named after popular programming languages. The girls fight against programming villains and gender inequality in their adventures, and the reader can help them by figuring out basic computer science logic problems. Rubygirl aims to inspire young girls in middle and high school to try out computer science and to encourage the idea that females can and should pursue STEM fields. It also hopes to bring awareness to the lack of diversity in computing. The project will be hosted online and will span the first chapter of the girls’ adventures.
