No Gender Gap: un progetto e una campagna dedicati ad aumentare l'interesse - e il numero - di bambine, ragazze, donne nella tecnoscienza

Since 2008, Scuola di Robotica, in collaboration with various colleges and educational organisations, has been carrying out projects dedicated to promoting the interest of children, young girls and women in technical and scientific professions.
The Erasmus plus porject "No Gender Gap" has created a platform that contains a complete course in coding and educational robotics dedicated to beginners and especially to girls and women.
Several studies have pointed out that with good school results of girls in mathematics, physics and science, it is the family who decides the girls' curriculum, which often does not have enough information to make a considered decision.
The project at Maker Faire will present the results of the No Gender Gap project, the free MOOC and the
-- will launch a new national campaign dedicated above all to make the FAMILIES aware of the situation of the world of work in Italy and the benefits in terms of job opportunities linked to the curriculum of technical-scientific studies
-- will organize a webinar during which a network of private public educational institutions will be presented and will promote projects dedicated to the theme and involving families.
