  8. 8. How to increase girls’ participation Be conscious of gender biases in teaching practices and curriculum Stereotype threat is perpetuated by the simple task of asking a girl to identify her gender on a maths test before she sits the test. Research (Aronson, 1999) suggests that by this very simple act, the girl will perform worse on the test than she is capable of because that is the expectation of her ability in society. They under-perform due to the self-identification of their personal demographics.
  9. 9. How to increase girls’ participation Promote ICT activities and tasks that have a clear social benefit RANDOM HACKS OF KINDNESS Brisbane, Winter 2016 HACKATHON: June 4th and 5th at QUT Gardens Point IDEATION NIGHT: 6pm May 11th at Orange Sky Laundry HQ (18 Proe Street Newstead) Twice a year altruistic volunteers from the IT community come together and spend a full weekend helping charities, not for profits and community groups solve some of the concrete problems that they face. We build solutions like mobile apps, websites and browser plugins that have immediate impact on the recieving organisations. Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK) was started in 2009 by Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, NASA and The World Bank. RHoK came to Australia in 2011 and is now Australia's largest and longest running hackathon for social good. On the 4th and 5th of June we will be heading to QUT's beautiful Gardens Point campus to work fast and furious on world-changing projects from Orange Sky Laundry (Young Australian of the Year winners!), Backbone Youth Arts, Street Swags (more Young Australian of the Year winners!) and Spur Projects! If you are a developer, programmer, engineer, designer, project manager or simply someone who is looking to be a part of something great please register your interest via our Meetup group. www.meetup.com/RHoK-Brisbane/ Digital Humanitarianism Citizen science

How to increase girls’ participation Discuss the historical contributions of females to our ICT industry Did you know that I invented Spread Spectrum, which is the basis for wifi that we all use today. This was in the 1920’s while I was a Hollywood Screen Goddess... Hedy Lamar I am the first programmer in the world, and yes, I’m a woman! I worked on Charles Babbage’s early mechanical general-purpose computer, the analytical engine in the mid 1800’s. Ada Lovelace When I was a Rear Admiral in the US Navy I invented the compiler, which revolutionised the way we talk to computers, from punch cards to computer code. Grace Hopper
