When I provided a robotics course on a volunteer basis at my local primary school, the children were impressed by the fact that the first programmer was a woman. However, many girls today have no idea whether they are good at programming or whether they would enjoy it. In my work as a software tester, I describe myself as a “play professional” in a test environment. I am a very inquisitive person and I want to know how things work and then test out what can go wrong for the customer. It’s exactly this sort of curiosity that I want to awaken in children: They ought to be encouraged to come up with an idea and then put it into practice, by programming for example. They just need to give it a try.
