What does CodePlus offer to schools?Code Plus

CodePlus is a highly interactive programme with a focus on increasing the number of female students choosing computer science in third level educational institutes.

A worrying trend has been identified which shows a drop in female participation in computer science courses in recent years, highlighting the importance of initiatives such as CodePlus. It is vital to address this issue at secondary level education to ensure we as a society can achieve gender balance and diversity in the workplace.

Other Lero led initiatives worth noting here include:

  • Scratch: an annual computer science programme that also encourages participation at both primary and secondary school which boasts a very high percentage of female participation.
  • Introduction of coding to the Junior Cert and Leaving Cert curriculum
