Building gender balance in computer science
The number of girls studying Computing Science today is almost 80% lower than it was in 2000. The Ada Scotland Festival is working to change that.
Together with our partners and supporters, we’re inspiring, educating, rewarding and awarding to ensure the future of Computing Science in Scotland is gender balanced. Join us.
The Ada Scotland Festival launched in October 2020, featuring 32 partners, 16 live events, and dozens of other activities. You can view all of the videos and activities from the 2020 Festival here.
