Computers are only for geeks 

What do you imagine when someone mentions they work with computers or in IT? Do you immediately think of a slightly nerdy man hunched over a keyboard in a darkened basement room, impervious to the rest of the world? Many people would think this. However, computer scientists and IT workers are diversifying and many are attempting to throw off their predominantly male, geeky, introverted image. In this show, Dr Karen Petrie wants to know what turned you on or off computers, and how there are major consequences for an outdated view of computer science.

Petrie, Karen
