We headed up north in March for a STEMtastic weekend in Newcastle with DXC Technology! On Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd, DXC Technology hosted 47 girls and young women for a 2-day hackathon Stemettes style! After some icebreakers, the girls knuckled down to work on their apps using HTML, AppShed and App Inventor. Since it was almost Internation women’s day, the brief was to create apps relating to women in technology. From Florence Nightingale to Ada Lovelace, the girls got stuck in researching and coding to create incredible apps. Once our app designers were finished, they got ready to present […]

Then during lunchtime, we got to meet loads of their #womeninSTEM, many who were Traders! […]
