After disclosing that a mere 30% of Google employees are female, Google has created this program to get more girls interested in science and technology at a young age. Spokeswomen include Chelsea Clinton and Mindy Kaling, as well as organizations such as Seventeen Magazine and Girl Scouts. Shapeways 3D will expand and use four of EOS’s largest 3D printers to allow daily printing of 8,000 bracelets coded by girls. Shapeways CEO Peter Weijmarshausen hopes the initiative will encourage girls to create and run their own Shapeway shops in the future.
