Girls as Engineers
PR dla Zagranicy
The nationwide “Girls as Engineers” campaign has been around for nine years. During that time, the ratio of girls enrolled in technical education in Poland has increased from 29% to 37%.
As Michał Owczarek reports, the campaign aims to promote technical and engineering studies among female high-school students. The “Girls as Engineers” report for 2016 was presented on Thursday.
“Nearly 90% of young girls in Poland know no female role models in this field – no female engineers, scientists, developers or programmers - and our role is to give them such examples, to show them technical universities are open to them,” says Bianka Siwińska, the campaign’s coordinator.
