Ada Festival Launch

Update: the recorded version of our launch event is now available to watch on YouTube!

Join us for the launch of the Ada Scotland Festival – a series of online events focused on addressing gender imbalance in Computing Science.

At this launch event, we will have a welcome message from Richard Lochhead, Minister for Further Education, Higher Education and Science and we’ll hear from dressCode founder Toni Scullion on why addressing the gender gap in Computing Science is so important. Then, we’ll have a Q&A session with two of Barclays’ Software Engineering Graduate Apprentices.

We will also kick off a number of exciting competitions, featuring some great prizes courtesy of our brilliant supporters.

The event is open to pupils, teachers, parents, and anyone else with an interest in addressing gender imbalance in Computing Science education, and the tech sector more widely.
