AWS GetIT – First Year female students Sign up, Make a Difference

St. Josephs are excited to share that we will be taking part in the fully funded AWS GetIT 2020-21 programme, delivered by Amazon Web Services in partnership with Future Foundations.
AWS GetIT –  First Year female students Sign up, Make a Difference

AWS GetIT aims to encourage girls to consider a career in tech and to challenge gender stereotypes within the industry. Our First year students will be designing an app that makes real, tangible social change within the school or local community.

An AWS ambassador will be involved with the school at different points throughout the year, to guide the students through the programme and provide useful tips for designing their apps. At the end of the year, selected app ideas will be entered into a competition against teams from other schools across the country.

The AWS team is factoring in Government guidelines and social distancing to ensure that the programme is run as safely as possible, with plans to deliver some of the content virtually. The priority is to make sure students can still take part and get the most out of the programme while staying safe.
