For the past two years Brescia House School has hosted a dinner for grade 11 girls who are studying either Computer Applications Technology or IT, their teachers and women in the IT industry. These dinners have provided a great opportunity for young woman with an interest in technology to network with professionals who have succeeded in the technology field.
This year, SchoolNet SA is proud to be associated with the CuriosITy dinner as well as the workshops which will be held in the afternoon before the dinner. These are taking place as follows:
Date: Wednesday 30 May 2018
Time: 3pm – 5pm
Venue: Brescia House School Hall – 14 Slone street Bryanston
Date: Wednesday 30 may 2018
Time: 6pm – 9:30pm
Venue: Bryanston Catholic Church Hall (adjacent to Brescia House School)
During the workshops, the girls and their teachers will learn more about Micro-bits, Robotics, Coding, Green Screen, Movie Making and more. The workshops will be followed by a three course dinner which will include two inspirational guest speakers. Changing seats between courses leads to the girls chatting to different professionals about what they do, which tertiary courses they found to be the most useful, and how they balance the demands of work and family life and working in a male dominated industry.
