Results of the initiative
The Girls, Outwit the Codes! tour is now over. The initiative, which began in November 2018 and ended in February 2020, was a great success with teachers, participating girls and their families!
Thanks to the fruitful collaborations between Grandir Sans Frontières and its 27 partners across 7 cities in the province of Quebec, 1489 young participants were able to learn about science from a new perspective and to learn more about digital technologies, all in an educational and fun setting.
More than 70 workshops were offered to young girls as part of this project, allowing them to develop a taste for scientific and technological fields, and also to develop a new interest in pursuing a future career in these predominantly male sectors.
