Bringing technology to life on International Day of the Girl

Girls’ participation in technology and engineering activities gaining momentum as community and corporate organisations collaborate to ensure change reaches the workplace

International Day of the Girl, a United Nations designated celebration to recognise girls’ and women’s rights around the world, took place this year on Saturday October 11th.

To coincide with the event Intel came together with a number of other companies and organisations, such as TOG, The Dublin Hackspace, to host Coder Girl Hack Day at the Dogpatch Labs in Dublin.

More and more girls are participating in technology and engineering activities because grassroots, academic and industry organisations are working together on events like Coder Girl Hack Day which gives participants the chance to experience technology in fun, exciting and collaborative ways.

The event this year had a number of different focus areas and introduced the girls and their families to the possibilities of technology and engineering careers through free learning sessions that included Maker Craft, Wearable Electronics, Web Development, and Python workshops.

The fun and creative workshops, for girls aged 10 to 17, were themed around Colour and Magic with learning sessions that included building a shadow boxes, designing light up wearable jewelry that incorporates coding, creating a website around a personal style, and discovering how to code-like-the-kids with python.
