            Abstract

            In this paper we present Gender by Numbers, a physical and virtual prototype that exhibits the gender imbalances in the pursuit of future careers. Our system collects and measures relationships between courses and gender retrieved from university statistical data. Our goal is to explore how high school students can be nudged towards gender consciousness and be aware of the gender imbalance of a course before applying to the university.
