Shipley College to host Tech for Good event on International Women’s Day

In honour of International Women’s Day on Wednesday 8th March, Shipley College are hosting a second Tech for Good event, following the success of a previous event last October.

Year 8 and 9 female pupils from local schools including Beckfoot School and Feversham Girls’ Academy will be involved in a ‘Mission Zero’ workshop, in which teams will create and submit simple Python computer programmes and submit them to run on two Raspberry Pi computers onboard the International Space Station.

Tim Rogers from Future Transformation, a non-profit organisation which provides opportunities and experiences for those wanting a career in tech will lead the event, along with Hannah Cebollah from Born in Bradford’s Digital Makers Project, with the goal of promoting #STEM opportunities and inspiring female students.

The event contributes to Shipley College’s commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals programme, linking to Gender Equality and empowering women and girls.
