CodePlus Mentor Breakfast @Science Gallery Dublin
Event on 2017-09-05 07:45:00
CodePlus is an innovative education project, based in Trinity College Dublin that provides coding workshops, teacher support and research to address the challenge of female under-representation in Computer Science and IT-related courses at 3rd level and consequently in follow-on careers. Since 2014, thanks to support from ICS Skills, we have run extensive coding workshops with over 600 students in a network of girls secondary schools to help address the complex issue of gender imbalance and to help female students make informed choices for their third level study and career paths. CodePlus is supported by the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), Discover Programme, that funds pioneering STEM education initiatives in Ireland. As part of our work with SFI we are looking for volunteers to talk to female secondary school students to share advice and insights about working in the tech sector. You are invited to breakfast at 7.45am on Tuesday 5th of September in the Science Gallery Dublin where we will give you more information on how you can be involved.
