"IT-Camp for girls" is a recurring event at Department of Computer Science, targeted at girls in secondary school aged 16-20 years. With three days of technology, design and inspiration the aim of the event is to challenge prejudices of the IT industry, and show these young girls that an education in IT certainly is for women.
