      SmartFutures in Computer Science for Girls hosted by Bank of America (Afternoon Session)

      Computer Science is too important to be left up to boys, geeks and nerds! The lack of female participation in Computer Science is a global phenomenon. Although the reasons for this are complex there is a consenus that a lack of understanding of what computing involves, a lack of visibilty of female role models and a perception of computer science being for "geeks" and "nerds" contribute to the problem. CodePlus is an initiative of the Trinity Access 21 (TA21) project in Trinity College Dublin. CodePlus seeks to address the issue of underrepresentation by providing support to schools to learn more about careers in computing, One aspect of what we do is to provide talks from female developers, engineers and professionals to girls in Irish secondary schools. Bank of America is a global tech company with a large base in Ireland providing many exciting career opportunities.
