In celebration of International Girls in ICT Day, on 29 April the Digital Leadership Institute* will carry out its second Digital Muse Girl Tech Fest 2017, a day-long, volunteer-run event promoting entrepreneurship, science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (“ESTEAM”) to 11-15 year old girls from the greater Brussels area, in order to encourage their participation in ESTEAM studies and careers.
The Digital Muse Girl Tech Fest 2017 will be carried out in minimum three languages (Dutch, English and French) for participants who will take part in fun, hands-on workshops led by role model professionals from ESTEAM-related fields. At previous events, as many as 250 girls took part in over 100 workshops on subjects such as “The Tech of DJ-ing,” “3D Jewellery Design & Printing” and “The Future of Fashion.”
In addition, participants will have day-long access to the “Digital Muse Lab” where partners and sponsors showcase activities that represent the latest in high-tech gadgets, games and experiments.
The Digital Muse Girl Tech Fest 2017 will include a free lunch and two Plenary Sessions with contributions by leading female figures in ESTEAM from Europe and beyond. At past events, participants enjoyed talks from women astronauts, software engineers and global ESTEAM leaders.
