WICs, or Women in Computer Science, is a programming language for teaching introductory computer science courses. The language doubles as a pedagogical tool and an advocacy platform to promote gender diversity in the technology industry. WICS uses syntax and structure that is easy for beginners to understand while maintaining the characteristics required to teach essential programming concepts. It usually incorporates female-friendly examples and contexts into its curriculum alongside traditional programming problems to make the content more relatable and inclusive for learners of all genders.
