Tech Playground project in Geneva that includes different workshops for girls aged 12-17 years old on digital technology.

Tech Playground is a community of young girls who can explore the world of technology by playing with different digital tools to produce great designs, websites, mobile apps, audio-visual media, animations to find a field that resonates with their personal interests and career aspirations.

The project is build around the model of “teach one to reach one”, where a percentage of the workshop contributions are used to fund the same sessions we hold in remote countries where girls lack these opportunities to play and learn.

About the Workshop
It is introductory level, filled with creativity, a two-day workshop for girls during which they will be introduced to the art of storytelling using the following topics:

  • Fake news: Don't believe everything you read, see or hear online
  • Create Magic: Explore and bring your imagination to life through pictures
  • SuperGirl: Let the world see who you want to be
  • Change the world: Design visuals to support your message and make social impact. Message: #Polar Bears Disappearing

Why Storytelling?
Storytelling doesn’t happen only through words. In the era of digital technology and the power of social media, the ability to create an interesting and engaging story through visuals - might be just the most important skill to have in the 21st century.


Objectives
In this workshop, students will create their own story through photography using Adobe Photoshop. They will learn how to set up a WordPress.com website and add their own content. We will also customise their website using HTML&CSS programming language. By the end of the workshop each student will develop a personal website that she can continue working on at home.

"THE WORKSHOP GOES BEYOND TEACHING GIRLS PROGRAMMING. IT'S AN OPPORTUNITY FOR DISCOVERY WHERE THE NATURAL CURIOSITY OF TECHNOLOGY IS STIMULATED THROUGH STORYTELLING AND IMAGINATION" - Nathalie Carminati, Web and Digital Communications for WHO and the workshop courseware developer.
