DigiPippi is developing rapidly and would like to retain even more girls' enthusiasm for IT and technology in the future. The association is one of our focus to improve opportunities for training and education of our role models.
At Technology Pact they have a special focus area – namely to get more women in STEM subjects, and thereby solve a problem of lack of manpower in the industry. This has Technology Pact chosen to meet and decided to support projects and initiatives to capture the girls' interest in technology.
“Therefore, there is need to expand the talent pool and the activities undertaken so that the proper role models, relationships and opportunities arise for girls and women become interested in STEM subjects and the potential to influence the world around us, as STEM skills provides.” – Technology Pact, February 5, 2020
In light of this, Technology Pact now chosen to support DigiPippi as initiative and project. The association has been granted DKK 250,000 to be used for increased DigiPippi Academy.
DigiPippi Academy is a learning platform to create opportunities for our role models and external trainers to become certified in DigiPippi method, which is a specific pedagogical method of teaching in IT and technology of 7-13 year old girls.
The Association is very grateful to have received this grant from Technology Pact, and for now that could create new opportunities for better training and education for our cool role models!
