If I asked you to name an inventor I bet you would name someone such as Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, or even Alan Turing but not someone such as Mary Anderson, Ada Lovelace or Grace Hopper. Mary Anderson invented windscreen wipers, Ada Lovelace was the first computer programmer and Grace Hopper invented the first compiler for a computer programming language.

Microsoft recently asked young girls to name female inventors and they couldn’t. They created a video of this which can be found at the following link:

To address the need for more girls and women to contribute their ideas, Microsoft is calling all girls around the world to #MakeWhatsNext.
