She++ Is a Winner

Yesterday evening, I saw She++, one of the most amazing documentary videos. Two of my students, Ellora Israni and Ayna Agarwal, produced this documentary on young women and CS/IT. They obviously got a good deal of professional help, as computing students don't, on their own, produce such a professional quality documentary.

My understanding is that it is free for K-12 schools who would like to arrange a viewing. (I believe it has been shown in a half dozen countries in the past 24 hours.) I had previously blogged about the trailer (which has been seen more than 20,000 times in the 6 weeks it's been available), and the entire documentary is, in my opinion, better than the trailer.

While the majority of the women in the video are college age or professional, there is a nice scene involving three high school girls.

Do contact She++, and show this documentary to your students and colleagues!
