How one teen is inspiring a generation of coders

When the boys on Michelle Liang’s school robotics team told her they included her only because they needed a girl on the team, she didn’t get angry — she got inspired. Michelle founded the Girls Who Code club at her school in San Jose, Calif., and participated in a seven-week summer immersion program at IBM.

As a Girls Who Code intern, Liang worked with her peers to develop Chatbots for Good, a course on creating empathetic chatbots. One of their goals was to design a chatbot that could help Girls Who Code clubs champion compassion in schools and communities.
