Heroine’s Learning Journey

The “Heroine’s Learning Journey” initiative is a project of Técnico Lisboa in a partnership with two startups, one from Portugal and another from Brazil, that aims to contribute to solving the low female student participation in the STEM areas. In the proposed solution the goal is to develop a curriculum program in Portuguese, parallel to the official science and technology school classes, in the format of a course that can give them a flavour of the labor market with a language and syllabus developed specifically for female students, in a part-time bootcamp format, focused on practical and real-life projects, integrated with platforms like MOOC TécnicoGitHub and StackOverflow. Various resources will be used, through the use of video, narratives, gamification, and podcasts.
