One-day technology camp at the
Credit24 was organised within the framework of the international project “Girls in the Digital World: Smart and Creative” (SparkDigiGirls), funded by the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership for Youth Programme.
About The Project
“Girls have a good understanding of how Tik Tok, Snapchat, Instagram, reading e-books and surfing the web work. But what they lack is information on how different technologies can be useful in their daily lives,” says Laura Grinevičiūtė, Director of the RIAP Association, adding that her organisation is currently working with partners to develop educational materials aimed at allowing girls to use their imagination to explore technologies such as artificial intelligence, 3D printing, augmented reality, coding and so on in real-life examples. Such hands-on experiences could, she said, increase girls’ interest in IT while they are still at school.
During the camp, the teenage girls tried out a newly developed coding activity with Scratch. They created a game to virtually model a garment they wanted. Using their imagination and coding tools, the girls managed to create some great and original works.
