Join us for the launch of the 2021 Ada Scotland Festival! The Festival this year will be opened by Jamie Hepburn MSP, Minister for Higher Education and Further Education, followed by a keynote message from inspiring Computing Science teacher, Liz Dighton.

Liz will share how she and her colleagues at Boroughmuir High School have achieved gender balance across their Computing Science classes. This will be followed by a unique panel of students and experts, discussing how we might achieve gender balance in CS education more widely. We’ll also be launching several exciting competitions, including this year’s Ada Scotland Inspiring Teacher Award!
