Girls in Coding
Mini tech conferences and meet-ups.
Empower women in technology by simply providing them with more visibility. What we do is we host mini tech conferences and meet-ups where a majority of our speakers – unlike other tech conferences – are women. That’s all.
Panel Events: Hear from women about their amazing roles
within STEM, their stories and their advice for you, the next generation.
Hackathons: We’ll teach you all you need to know to create
your own mobile app, game or website and then you can enter our ‘Demo Day’
competition on your own or in a team.
School Workshops: Try out some Science, Technology, Engineering
and Maths at the offices of our friends in industry. Perhaps you’ll create an app for a music festival, design a theme park or create a new way to travel.
More than mentoring: Student to Stemette matches girls aged 15 and over with women in industry for 4 months. They also receive work experience and other career opportunities.
To inspire the next generation of females into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) fields by showing them the amazing women already in STEM via a series of panel events, hackathons, exhibitions, and mentoring schemes.
