Girls’ IT Bootcamp by the European Central Bank (ECB)

Are you a girl aged 9-17 interested in robots and computers? The European Central Bank (ECB) offers a three-day IT bootcamp, that could be an ideal fit for you.

Join this IT-bootcamp in order to explore opportunities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics – or STEM for short. At this IT bootcamp you will program LEGO robots and learn JavaScript, discovering some of the many possibilities that the world of coding has to offer. You will also be invited on a tour of the ECB’s building, take part in experiments in our Banknotes lab and visit the “ECbees” in our urban garden.

The IT-bootcamp will take place from 31 May 2022 to 2 June 2022. The three-day programme of events will take place at the ECB’s premises in Frankfurt, Germany. You will try your hand at programming and coding in a relaxed, girl-friendly learning environment, and will visit our office areas, Banknotes lab and urban garden.

Applications are open until 15 May 2022, with places allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. The programme, which will be held in English, is open to 20 girls aged 9-17. No prior IT knowledge or experience is needed to take part in the event. Attendance is free of charge. All necessary equipment and lunch will be provided. Daily travel to and from the venue should be organised privately.
