The event is designed to showcase the varied roles and jobs that both exist and involve the use of technology in the workplace, to enthuse and inspire the girls into an interest in technology. It is also designed to counter the stereotype that computer science is a subject that only leads to jobs in programming and coding.
The event is aimed at girls who have not yet made their GCSE choices, so that they get the opportunity to see how studying computer science could potentially augment and enhance their future career prospects.
The event will consist of four themed modules offering interactive, hands on, self-guided, exploratory learning that reduces the amount of time spent in traditional instructor led presentations to the very minimum.
Use digital forensics and open source intelligence to find the first person who has contracted a disease and learn how open source intelligence can lead to finding out more information about this person.
Learn the basics of how to customise a website and generate enthusiasm to contribute to the World Wide Web.
Understand and use big data to create the perfect team using a set of sports results, compare with others and learn the interpretation of data.
Against the clock you will work within teams to unlock various devices, during this you will get a taste of cryptography, language analysis and understand some cyber security terms. However, don’t be distracted as the timer won’t stop until you crack the code.
