Multilingual Girls in Control Workshop material is now available!

The Girls in Control (GIC) virtual workshop, which is offered free of charge, is targeted to 10-to-15-year-old girls. Its aims are to stimulate their passion for control and encourage them to consider a career in STEM.

During the workshop, the girls watch several videos covering control theoretic principles. They learn about feedback and discuss control examples from their everyday lives. Using the Scratch programming language they can then implement their first controllers for an automated game of their design.

The workshop is currently available in English, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, and Portuguese and is being expanded to include Bangla, Chinese, Farsi, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Punjabi, Pushto, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, and Urdu. Additionally plans are underway to expand the workshop to include offerings for older girls with prior/advanced programming experience.

If you are interested in developing materials for the Girls in Control workshop in an additional language, or you have any questions related to the GIC workshop in general, please contact gic@ifac-control.org.
