Workshops for primary school children.
it girls school
The IT GIRLS SCHOOL workshop series invites 7th and 8th graders to the CIC business center. During the workshops, students have the opportunity to see how the work of people connected with IT looks like as well as interesting demos of various technological solutions and work in a modern office, such as CIC Warsaw.
The goal of our workshops is to inspire kids to pursue a career related to technology and IT. We want to show them that IT is not only about programming and persons with many different characters and interest may find something suitable for them in IT. We also want to emphasize that we do not exclude boys in our actions. Everyone is always welcome at our workshops!
Our workshops are often attended by employees of our partners' companies. Thanks to such cooperation, we are able to invite children to their coworking spaces and offices, such as the Venture Cafe Warsaw Foundation and PwC Polska.
We conduct technology lessons with every age group, starting with 5-6 year olds and ending with students. We show different ways of using technology and how to teach about it wisely. We want children to know not only its positive, but also dangerous sides in the future.
We do not exclude
One of our watchwords is "inclusive not exclusive". We want to emphasize that in our activities we do not exclude boys and men - we also want to encourage them to take up a career in the technology industry and they are always welcome at our events and workshops.
We support female students and pupils wishing to study IT, women currently working in IT or wishing to change their profession. Have questions? Need some help? Contact us!
