Girls Hack Ireland wants you!

Websites - we use them every day - but have you ever wondered about how they are put together? Have you ever thought about how you might make your own?

Well, Girls Hack Ireland would love to show you how! We are running a free website workshop for girls on the 11th of March in Dublin City University. If you are aged between 13 and 17 years old, we'll teach you everything you need to know, and we'll provide you with a laptop too. All you have to bring on the day is yourself (and your parent/guardian if you are under 16).

Parents, while your daughters/charges are busy learning the ins and outs of web design, we'll be running a similarly themed course for you. You'll be able to continue the learning at home!

Girls Hack Ireland is a programme brought to you by the Insight Centre for Data Analytics. The programme aims to introduce girls to the world of science, technology, engineering and maths in a fun and supportive way.

Dr Aoibheann Bird, Education and Public Engagement Manager for the Insight Centre for Data Analytics says, ‘We’re very excited to be running this workshop in March – we’re looking forward to meeting new girls and parents, and introducing them to the creative world of technology!’

Students will be coming from all over the country and places are being snapped up quickly. You can find out more at http://girlshackireland.org/
