IT is awesome!
IT is the future and this summer school will start your journey towards a dream job.

Still not sure what to study after you finish high school? Which university to apply for? Explore the world of information technologies beyond the realm of general knowledge. In a week, we will show you the way into IT, what it really stands for and all the practicalities.

Program, get creative and make your own blog or a web-based game. Technologies can help you change the world. Programming only requires practice. All it takes is for you to be willing, motivated and persistent. Take the future in your hands and sign up for our IT Summer School. IT is not just for boys, you’ll see.

In one week of IT Summer School, we’ll teach you:

  • To create a website using HTML and CSS

  • To work with vector curves and graphics software

  • The basics of web function programming

Never seen HTML, CSS or programming in your life? Don´t worry. You'll get well acquainted during the course.

What else is in store ?

You'll try your hand at several different technologies. We've played with LEGO robots and Arduino in the past.

  • You'll meet many interesting people during the week, who'll give you insider info on how things go in large IT companies as well as small firms. In the past, we've had a developer from Skype, Microsoft and MSD, talented students from the Faculty of Informatics from Masaryk University as well as aerospace engineers. We don't want you to go stiff from sitting all day so we include optional daily morning runs and yoga (the activity always depends on the city where you register).
  • Most importantly, at IT Summer School you'll meet 20 to 30 excited girls who are curious and motivated to conquer the world of IT just like you.
  • We have lots of work ahead but it will all be worth it!
