It’s not magic It’s just knitting!

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

During a recent visit to Team Cooper, Meg Munn MP met constituent and production manager Emma Cooper and Erica Packington at their offices in the Electric Works at Sheffield’s Digital Campus. The main topic of conversation concerned the challenges of getting more women and girls to study and work in the information technology field, and Meg heard about some of the work Emma has been involved in.

Emma’s philosophy on writing code is that ‘It’s not magic, it’s just knitting’ and she’s been working with other women to show girls that coding is fun! Emma was involved in the recent Games Britannia event at the Magna Science Adventure Centre, Rotherham, and is also active in the Geek Girls network. They discussed the role of grassroots innovation and the different work to engage girls in this area that’s happening in the UK and around the world. 

Meg said:

“It was great to hear about some of the fun and interesting ways that have been developed to get girls interested in technology. I was especially interested in Emma’s approach of looking at coding in a similar way to knitting that it is all about the satisfaction derived from creating something functional.”

Team Cooper is a digital agency specialising in Flash development. They work with game companies, marketing departments and design agencies developing flash games, Facebook games, social media applications and websites.
