Computer Science Engagement Project for Girls
Addressing the gender imbalance in the field
CS courses and pursuing careers in the field
Grown and developed since its inception in 5 years
Links with industry and technology career pathways in Computer Science will be promoted through the aforementioned workshops and through career talks (via webinars or talks in company offices) by female role models working in the tech sector. In the past number of years, partnerships with tech companies have been particularly useful in increasing the participant engagement with the IT industry. For many of our students, there are few opportunities to visit tech companies and or indeed to meet with female role models working in the industry. This aspect of the programme creates an authentic way for students to see the potential career paths open to them in the field of computing.
