Startup Spotlight: Play Works Studio develops games to get girls excited about programming, science

Two years ago at a Startup Weekend Women’s Edition event, former Amazon and Microsoft user experience designer Adriana Moscatelli was inspired to address the gender imbalance in the tech industry. She wanted to create a tool that made learning science and technology skills fun for kids — and especially girls.

That’s exactly what Moscatelli has built with Play Works Studio, a startup backed by the National Science Foundation that develops games to teach programming, math, and science to kids.
