Intelligirl Software - Company History

www.intelligirl.com [cached]

While researching women's achievements in ancient and modern societies at the New School for Social Research in New York City, Zosia Zaks dreamed of finding a way to convey just how successful and courageous women have been through the ages.

While doing a graduate student research project at a local science center, Zosia determined that boys and girls equally liked the science and technology exhibits, but that the girls were often discouraged in their explorations by the social atmosphere and other environmental factors.
Like many ideas and projects, Intelligirl began in Zosia's kitchen at 3:00 a.m. when it dawned on her that perhaps she could combine computers and women: in other words, perhaps she could excite girls about computers and technology in a way that spoke to their needs and interests.Zosia sat down to design a computer game for girls and Intelligirl was born.She completed the storyboards for Intelligirl's first title as her thesis in December 1999.
