Full Summary:

A new University of Washington study suggests that traditional "nerdy" images of computer scientists, along with the paraphernalia that accompanies those images (think "Star Trek"), keep more women from entering the field. Mark Guzdial, professor in Interactive Computing and director of Georgia Computes!, agrees but says a little truth can dispel a lot of stereotypes. Source: Discovery.com
