Event Details


Application Period

22 February 2017, 09:00 ~ 17 March 2017, 23:59
(applications submitted after the application period would not be considered)


Background

ICT is a traditionally male-dominated industry. The number of women who adopt ICT as a career is disproportional to the demographics. Despite making up about 50% of the population, women represent only 20% of the ICT workforce in Hong Kong, leading to a traditional perception that female is “less technical”.

The "Girls for Tech" challenge is an opportunity for female secondary school students to prove to themselves and the world that - Girls can be Tech!

Each team should produce a 2 – 4 minutes virtual reality (VR) video of a specific theme (to be announced on the briefing cum workshop day in March) and deliver a presentation to the judging panel to introduce their ideas behind the production of the entry.
