2017

Last year, g4g and Cisco celebrated girls in tech by hosting our Girl Power Tech - g4g @work w/ Cisco in Brussels on May 3rd. Together, we welcomed 40 young, ambitious girls for an amazing, fun-filled day. They got to explore electronics, learned about Mars in a workshop inspired by the movie “The Martian” and got to learn from inspiring Cisco rolemodels, having the opportunity to ask them questions in a Speed Mentoring session. At the end of the day, all the girls became Cisco Certified Future Engineers!

2016

On April 27th, g4g collaborated with Cisco BeLux to invite 30 girls from the local community for Cisco’s Global Girls in ICT Day. The girls experienced three fun and hands-on tech-driven workshops and in the end of the day, they became Cisco Certified Future Engineers (CCFE)! So what did the girls get to experience? A popular workshop – Arduino electronics FUN – gave the girls an opportunity to build their own creations, like traffic lights, and control the physical world via sensors and actuators; A custom-made Cisco workshop called “I’m a Router” where the girls discovered the basics of routing protocols and the logic that guides networking devices by building connections across the globe; “The Martian” Telepresence Technology – yet another custom-made Cisco workshop. The girls got to experience first-hand how cool cutting edge technology connects Cisco employees around the globe and how Mark fom Mars signals to his colleagues back on Earth! Finally, the girls went through the Cisco TAC Lab Tour that takes you through an amazing visit of one of Cisco’s largest labs, with tons of cool gear that can replicate any customer network in less than four hours!
