GirlsCodeToo believes that education is key for the future of our society. By providing a nurturing and supporting environment for our students we encourage them to explore different technologies and become pivotal players shaping tomorrow’s digital world.
Offering workshops to schools is key to reach girls and boys that would otherwise not be exposed to such skills.
GirlsCodeToo believes in giving all our students the possibility to discover technology in a fun way. We do this by delivering inspiring tech-themed workshops and offering exclusive coding clubs as well as team and individual-based preparations for girls, allowing them to participate in the Swiss Olympiad in Informatics or FIRST LEGO League.
