In kids stories today, 0% of princesses code, boys are twice as likely to be the lead, under 3% of characters are BAME, 92% of female characters are underweight, and Batman doesn’t recycle! This has to change. We've created Detective Dot to inspire the next generation to be coders, not Kardashians. Read more about our story here. And because teachers rock, for every book you buy, we give free materials to a school.

CodingIn 2014, the UK government made Computer Science compulsory in primary schools - that means 5 year olds are learning to code, alongside English and Maths. We’re the first country to do this, and it’s ace. Because there’s a global digital skills gap (the UK is going to need 2.3m digital workers by 2020), and a lack of females and minorities working in STEM (science, tech, engineering, maths) - currently less than 13%. Less girls take computer science degrees today than they did 10 years ago!
They think it is 100% legit... It is total magic for them.
