Inicio has celebrated the Girls in ICT day since 2016. The International Girls in ICT day is an initiative by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and is celebrated yearly on the last Thursday of April. The aim is to create a global environment that empowers and encourages girls and young women to consider careers in the growing field of ICT.
This year we invite 100 girls ,of ages 13 – 19, to participate in a full day of hands on activities and case studies. The event will tale place on the 25th of April at KTH Kista 09:00-16:00. Register here.
Inicio is participating for the second year in Södertälje Science Week with two activities.
During the science week a number of companies and organisations will present their cases and the students will work in groups and try to come up with solutions in just a few hours. Inicio is providing mentoring, which will continue in the fall 2019 when the cases will be extended to full scale project presentations.
We also hope to meet curious citizens of all ages in the Science Week after work activities, Meet & Chill in the main entrance hall of the Södertälje Science Park. Inicio will be there on 30 and 31 January, 16:00-18:00 with a workshop on building Bubble Nodes.

Future Friday is an inspirational day organised by KTH for high school students to discover the opportunities offered by the IT industry. Inicio will be there holding workshops where students can practice hands-on electronics. Join us to build your own bubble nodes from scratch, electronic devices that can communicate with each other and exchange data. Our mentors, current KTH students, will be there to help you and explain how everything works. You can register to Future Friday here.
