Ada Lovelace Day in Hull: An event to inspire the next generation of digital makers and support an increased participation of girls in computing
Invitations have now arrived in schools for a day of creative and collaborative digital making challenges with career connections at Winifred Holtby Academy on Thursday 30th June.
This event aims to encourage Y7 girls to explore physical computing and e-textiles through social and hands-on learning activities.
We’ll be using resources and activities from the WISE Campaign’s People Like Me project and collaborating with STEM Ambassadors through a range of hands-on challenges.
- To support the participation of more girls in computing and strategies to help close the gender gap in STEM fields.
- To challenge and influence perceptions of computing with positive role models
- To share creative opportunities through physical computing as a wearable tech STEAM projects (art, textiles, design etc.)
- To support teachers with networking and collaborative opportunities
Look out for more opportunities with peer to peer learning activities and community digital-themed events across the city of Hull.
