Scratch and the team of the Raspberry Pi Foundation invited to the Scratch Conference Europe 2019 in Cambridge. It was very inspiring to meet interesting communities from CoderDojo, CodeClub, CoolProject and many others.
It was a pleasure to present our work:

100 years women's studies at TU Graz
TU Graz, May 10, 2019
It has been 100 years since women were allowed to study at TU Grazm Austria. “If they don’t take away any space from the men and don’t damage anything”.
For this event, the gender equality office of TU Graz created photo cards of female researchers at TU Graz with explanations to their research topics. Thanks for this opportunity.

ICGR Poster Session
11-12. April 2019, Rom/Italy
Topics of the conference: Despite some advances being made in the area, topics related to gender research remain pertinent and are gaining momentum in a changing society. It is thus important to empower and to develop research on specific gender topics, in order to acquire a clearer understanding and to obtain important insights.

Title: Gender-sensitive computer science didactics to empower women in technology
Abstract (short): Mrs. Bernadette Spieler presents current research and results from her dissertation in the field of gender-sensitive computer science didactics. She presents examples / reflections on gender-mixed classes and “girls-only” coding initiatives. As a result, a new teaching model is presented (in terms of structure, material, language, games, etc.) with the aim of engaging students independently of their gender.

Workshop & Lunch Talk: For the workshop the participants worked alone or in a small team and code a game app. They learnt something about coding through direct experience, tinkering, collaboration,
and creativity. To think about an idea first can be hard sometimes. That’s why we proposed initial ideas and code fragments they could use within their game.
