Girls’ Day Event held at the Institute

October 15, 2020

On October 1st, our team at the Department of Software Engineering has taken part in a program organized by the Institute of Informatics for Girls’ Day: a series of events dedicated to women interested in the fields of science, technology, and engineering.

Girls' Day is a career orientation day for female students promoting professions close to STEM areas. On this day, primary and secondary school girls can visit the country’s companies, universities, and research institutes, where they can learn about the world of science, technology, and informatics from practicing professionals through interactive programs. The event has been organized for the ninth time in 2020, but it was held online for the first time due to the pandemic.

The Institute of Informatics has been happy to join the event for the past few years. This yeah, the team led by Dr. Ákos Kiss and Dr. Rudolf Ferenc held the event “Online, interactive programming in practice: Programming embedded and IoT devices”. The team has received a healthy number of visitors, and they were delighted to see that so many girls are interested in their profession. All those who joined, managed to write their own programs for a real device. We hope it was both informative and fun for all participants!

Read more about the event (in Hungarian) on the Institute’s dedicated website, or sign up for next year’s event on the official website!

See you all again in 2021!
