It’s not just staring at a screen: Computer science took Stanford’s Amy Nguyen to Paris

Nguyen is an outlier when it comes to women and computer science. Nationally, only 17.6 percent of CS degrees go to women.

Those working to pump up the number of women in computing promote the message that that stereotype is simply not so.
