IT module of Stem is Fem project now open for applications
STEM is FEM charity project brings together high-school girls interested in IT. It is aimed to involve schoolgirls in studying technical subjects and give a powerful impetus to their choice of future career. Launched by Gamingtec, the STEM project is a good opportunity to form a strong female IT community in Ukraine.
STEM is FEM is an educational project that engages girls in studying science, technologies, engineering, and mathematics. IT Module is focused on computer technologies because there is a lack of female employees in IT companies. According to statistics provided by recruiting agencies, 65% of all workers in the IT industry are men.
’The first [Bioengineering] module was successful. More than 20 girls from different Ukrainian cities visited Kyiv, where they were welcomed by Zoriana Skaletska, the Ukrainian Minister of Healthcare. The girls also attended lectures of experts in biochemistry and had an excursion to Bogomoletz Institute of Physiology. The second module is focused on IT technologies, so we are preparing an interesting program for participants, as well’, said Sapar Karyagdyyev, CEO of Gamigtec.
The second module is open for applications till November, 25. Everybody is welcome to pass a test. 30 girls who achieve the highest results will be invited for a two-days event to Kyiv. We expect that module to be one of the most popular, so we wish good luck to everyone who wants to give it a try.
In Kyiv, all the participants will receive keepsakes during the module, and the most hardworking student will be awarded a top prize. By now, we keep it a secret, but until we can reveal the details about the prize, we can assure you, it will be valuable and useful for any IT girl.
