Google is kicking off its new initiative to encourage more girls to take up coding.

The Internet giant launched its Made with Code project on Thursday. 

The program includes partnerships with the girl scouts to hold coding parties, a website to introduce girls to basic coding, and $50 million to support programs that encourage more girls to take up computer science.
