"A new math and programmeringsläger without boys to spark more girls' interest in programming and problem-solving."
" We have had camps with 70 participants, only three have been girls. This will be a more welcoming environment, " says event organizer Linn Rydberg."
"this weekend was held for the first time a programming and matteläger for girls. The camp was held in Lund, sweden, and behind is the non-profit association Young Vetenskapssport. The advantage of targeting both math and programming is that the substances are so strongly interconnected."
"– If you are going to be good at programming, you need math, and you are good at math, you will most likely find that programming is fun, " says Linn Rydberg."
"once upon A time, she was self campers and felt often that it was sad that there were so few girls. This weekend's pojkfria camp is the first camp she is responsible for, and it went better than expected. A total of 38 girls from different parts of the country. The plan is to organize a new camp already in the autumn."
" It feels great that so many came. I was just talking with a few students when one of the girls said that she didn't even knew that there were girls who like to program prior to this camp. I think this really symbolizes why it is important."
"One of the participants was 18-year-old Agnes Ekman, who is taken down from Stockholm. Everyday she goes in school, Södra Latin in Stockholm and is interested in both math and programming."
" I wanted to go to learn more and to get the see of Lund, which is a really nice student city. The camp has been great, I've learned a lot and met many new people, " she says."
"During the two days held lectures on mathematics and programming where theory and exercises interspersed."
"– They go through a lot and it is a faster tempo than what one is accustomed to. But even if you do not understand everything to get a better grip on the programming, " says Agnes Ekman."
"the Camp ended on Sunday with a large programming contest where it went on to solve various problems and tasks the best or for the shortest time, and the winners were awarded with candy."
