A series of three short documentary films that show how women revolutionized the computing and Internet technology we use today, inspiring female students to believe that programming careers lie within their grasp. The Computers features the extraordinary story of the ENIAC programmers, six young women who programmed the world's first modern, programmable computer, ENIAC, as part of a secret WWII project. The Coders tells the story of two women, Sarah Allen and Pavni Diwanji, whose technologies revolutionized the Internet with their work on the invention of Flash and Java. In The Future Makers, Andrea Colaço, who invented 3D "gestural recognition technology" and co-founded 3dim to develop and market it, shares her dream of a world in which we interact with our smart devices using natural hand gestures, not static keyboards or touchpads.
