Skool is the flagship project of the Technology in Education Foundation that provides free technology training for 8-18-year-old girls.
Our future is determined by the direction the technological development will take. We are not only aware of this, but also working to support such development.
We undertook a large mission to provide useful and usable technological knowledge to young girls and women in a brand new form of education as an independent organization, on a non-profit basis. We could even say: out of love.
Through our programs, we show young girls what technology is about and what career opportunities they could have in the future of this exciting world. Through this, we actively encourage and inspire them to choose technology when they get to decide between various education and working opportunities.
Our aim is also that young people should feel a sense of achievement during learning and experience it as a joyful, explorative activity. We organize practice-oriented, experimental and child-centered programs that help young girls become active participants in technological innovation and be able to form their own future and achieve success in their professions in this area.
Our mission is to make a positive and lasting impact on the Hungarian society. We are building a community which supports the professional career and success of girls in the world of technology while assisting in reaching gender equality and balance in this sector.
We have built partnerships with the most important companies in the technology sector. Thanks to our partners, programmer girls can get an insight into the daily life of the tech industry. They also get the opportunity to personally meet with developers and the most prominent women of the tech crowd who inspire and encourage through personal stories.
Because there will be a time when we shall be very proud of hearing cool computer scientists, reputable business women, and company executives speaking about their career:
I’ve started in Skool, too! :)
At our half-day or one-day workshops you can get to know the friendly face of technology. You can roam in the realm of computer graphics and animation, mobile applications or robotics if you like and in the meantime you can have an insight for what it is like to work in the offices of Ericsson, Prezi, Microsoft or Graphisoft.
We keep the programs for girls between 10 and 16 years of age. Not only because IT knowledge in today’s world is cool for girls, too, but we also think that before making your career choice you should be introduced to an exciting future-oriented field. It is important that we organize different programs for different age groups, please chose the one which is meant for you. You do not need any special previous experience; you only need to be enthusiastic and have unlimited curiosity!
We focus on interesting topics such as robotics, development of mobile applications, computer graphics and animation, as well as web design. We develop the syllabus together with recognized Hungarian and foreign professionals. Our aim is to raise interest in technology and uncover a range of career prospects in this field.
During the 10-week course, wich meets once or twice after school for 90 minutes, experienced professionals introduce you to the basics of programming in an exciting way while you can learn a great number of new, thrilling things, we guarantee that!
We are looking for girls between 10 and 16 years, who are interested in the world of technology and ready to participate in a 10-week tech adventure. You do not need any special previous experience, just active attention and curiosity!
At present, the topics of the courses are Scratch and Processing. Topics are being developed by recognized Hungarian and foreign professionals. Our syllabus requires project-based learning. Our goal is that the process of learning should seek and give answers to real challenges.
Apart from tech knowledge we focus on developing skills like increasing self-confidence, ambition, problem solving and decision-making. These will be achieved by tasks like preparing and holding presentations, situational games, teamwork and problem solving practice. We also organize inspirational talks with successful women working in the field of technology.
