The Instituto Superior Técnico Taguspark community recently celebrated Girls in ICT Day 2023 on 27 April with GIRLSTEAM 2023, a program of activities and demonstrations for more than 200 primary and secondary school students.

Organized to encourage young women to train in STEAM disciplines (that is: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics), this program included activities from the INESC-ID Artificial Intelligence for People and Society (AIPS) research area.

Celebrated since 2011, Girls in ICT Day is a “global celebration [that this year] included a series of events that […] addressed different topics related to Digital Skills i.e., role models, education, mentorship, and youth participation.”

For this year’s GIRLSTEAM event, the organizers produced the awesomely illustrative video below. Have a watch.
