Dear QMC parents and students.
Below looks like a great holiday opportunity for our girls. Year 10 students in particular may well be interested, as most of them have had experience with programming Arduino boards in the Year 10 Digital Technology course.
Be sure to register quickly if you are interested, as spaces will be limited.
Kia ora koutou
VUWWIT (Victoria University of Wellington Women in Tech) is a student-led group for women and non-binary students studying computer science, engineering and STEM subjects. Diversity is our passion and our purpose. We want to make sure girls are getting the opportunity to learn about technology in a fun and inclusive environment, so we thought we would do our part by hosting a Girls in ICT Outreach Day for secondary students!
Our aims with this outreach day are to:
- Introduce female students to Engineering and Computer Science at VUW
- Expose students to fun and challenging activities in tech
- Encourage students to consider study or a career in STEM
We will do programming with Arduino, games processing, build Android apps and play some fun computer games to teach Ruby and Linux command line skills. The event is FREE of charge and lunch is provided.
