A major challenge for tertiary institutions, both national and international, is finding a way to attract young women into Information and Communications Technology (ICT) programmes. Traditionally, the ratio of females to males participating in these programmes has remained static at about 20:80, in spite of numerous global initiatives to try and address this imbalance. Strategies aimed at addressing this problem in New Zealand have focused mainly on girls at secondary school in years 10 to 12.

This poster illustrates one approach, based on an initiative started over 20 years ago by Margot Phillipps, an international board member for the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA).
