Celebrating women’s month with the UWC I.S. Department

Each year in the month of August, South Africa celebrates women across different sectors and this year is no different!

The University of the Western Cape Information Systems department in the EMS faculty, will be celebrating women’s month through a range of events.

On the 19th of August 2016, 100 young girls from high schools in surrounding townships in Cape Town including our Mozilla club members, will spend the day at UWC learning about finch robots, coding and getting to meet women working in the tech space.
