Girls just want to have fun coding (CodingGirl) project focuses on activities aimed to encourage girls to coding and study IT/STEAM. Through the hackathons and CodingGirl educational platform we will design the learning activities specifically developed for girls and aimed to create a supportive and inclusive learning environment. The innovative living libraries will include role models – girls and women who have succeeded in the tech industry, which can help break down stereotypes and encourage girls to start coding.
Project CodingGirl reflects very well both chosen priorities of the Erasmus+ as it develops a wide range of activities aimed at supporting girls aged 8-15 to be involved in computer science and start in coding activities. This aim is fully in line with the horizontal priority "Addressing digital transformation through development of digital readiness, resilience and capacity" as well as sectorial priority "Promoting interest and excellence in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and the STEAM".
Developed project will not only support the purposeful use of digital technologies in education, learning, assessment and engagement but equally will develop the digital skills and competences of girls in age 8-15, which gives a particular attention to promoting gender equality.
