Diary of a computer scientist or: How to inspire girls for technology & computer science?” (Hexagonal diskutiert)

DATE:Monday, January 20, 2020
VENUE:Future Learning Lab Wien, Daumegasse 5, 1100 Vienna, Austria

“Girls lose interest in MINT subjects between the ages of 11 and 15.”

On January 20, 2020, stakeholders across Austria will gather in Future Learning Lab Wien to present research, activities, and projects which have the potential to foster interest in STEM fields among girls ages 11 to 16. The discussion in the series of “Hexagonal disskutiert” is made available by our project ADA.Wien, our cooperation partner Future Learning Lab Wien, and funding bodies of the project ADA: Wirtschaftsagentur Wien – Vienna Business Agency and BMVIT Infothek, as well as our own TU Wien Informatics.

This event is a kick-off of the activity “Diary of a Computer Scientist” part of the project ADA. It is intended to rectify the common image that computer science is a purely male domain and to give girls the opportunity to get to know female role models, e.g. successful computer scientists, personally. The ADA project is funded by the Vienna Agency and the BMVIT and runs from 2019 to 2022.

Martina Lindorfer, winner of the Hedy Lamarr Prize 2019 of the City of Vienna, will open the event. Numerous keynote lectures will introduce stakeholders from all over Austria who plan and carry out activities or research in the field of “Girls & STEM”.
