Hacking for Gender Equality in STEM
March 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Science and gender equality are both vital for the achievement of the internationally agreed development goals, including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Over the past 15 years, the global community has made a lot of effort in inspiring and engaging women and girls in science. Yet women and girls continue to be excluded from participating fully in science.
At present, less than 30 % of researchers worldwide are women. Globally, female students’ enrolment is particularly low in ICT (3 %), natural science, mathematics and statistics (5 %) and in engineering, manufacturing and construction (8 %).
Join with Random Hacks of Kindness Junior as we design and code apps addressing girls place in the STEM field. Together with mentors, participants will have the opportunity to create apps that highlight the importance of inspiring and engaging women and girls in science, technology, engineering and math.
