Intelligirl Software - Company History

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.

Zosia Zaks is the author of Life and Love: Positive Strategies for Autistic Adults and writes and speaks nationally on issues of importance to the autism community. Zosia earned a M.Ed. in Rehabilitation Counseling from Hunter College and has a degree in Technical Journalism from Polytechnic University. Zosia works as a vocational rehabilitation counselor, and advocates on the state and federal levels for employment policies and programs that meet the unique needs of adults across the spectrum. Because life was a struggle until Zosia was properly diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at age 31, and because it took years to obtain a proper diagnosis and appropriate services for two daughters on the spectrum, Zosia also advocates for earlier detection for young children who do not fit the typical profile of autism, focusing in particular on outreach to minority communities that lack access to information and resources.
