No matter if they decide to continue studying at a university or not.
We are helping them get a set of the most important digital skills and get ready for the future world of work.

Aj Ty v IT Coding club is a place of regular meetings for girls who are interested in the world of modern technologies. Its main goal is to provide them with practical skills in programming, web design, artificial intelligence, IoT or computer graphics, which they can continue to build on or use as a motivation for further interest in IT.
Girls Code Online programme with the subheading From Abov to Záhorie builds on the idea of coding clubs and helps girls get IT knowledge mainly online. It is composed of one-off workshops and courses which deal with the topics in more detail.
We organise the Security Girls project in cooperation with Eset, and it results from our mutual reflections about the importance of safe behaviour of the young generation in cyberspace. Its main goal is to provide secondary school girls and boys with sufficient knowledge about cybersecurity by training and building a network of Security Girls – community security ambassadors.
Girl’s Day is an event connecting IT companies and organisations with secondary school girls all over Slovakia to motivate them to study informatics and pursue a career in this sector. The event is also part of celebrating International Women and Girls in ICT Day, which is celebrated always on the fourth Thursday of the fourth month. In Slovakia, it has been under the patronage of our organisation since its beginning in 2014.
The Spoznaj IT faCOOLty project is aimed at presenting the studies of information technologies and associated fields to secondary school girls. The goal of the project is to give them the opportunity to experience one day in an IT faculty with a mentor (a student of that faculty). During that day, they will visit lectures and practical seminars, and get to know the environment and atmosphere of the faculty.
Not much is needed to spark interest in IT! Sometimes, all it takes are shorter one-to-two-hour-long taster encounters with technology, which can spark long-term interest or help the girls find out what in the IT world suits them best. We are regularly updating the list of these courses in the Events section.
We regularly visit secondary schools and organise sample workshops on various topics there, too. We enrich the content of IT lessons and show new possibilities that IT offers both
for studies as well as career. If you are interested, we will provide you with a personalised offer.
Not often are technologies associated with creativity. That is why we decided to bust this stereotype through a common project with the US Embassy in Slovakia called Creativity is My Middle Name. In American Center Košice and American Center Banská Bystrica, we are organising a series of workshops bringing out creativity using software tools for animation and photography or practical projects.
