On May 17th, 2024 an event hosted by I3P, the Incubator of Politecnico di Torino for innovative start-ups, marked the end of the third edition of "Coding Girls Torino", the innovative course promoted by Fondazione Mondo Digitale in collaboration with Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo that accompanied students from primary and secondary schools in the municipality of Turin (Italy) and its province to discover coding.

This year, the project involved 125 trainings for 15 schools: the upper secondary school students, in particular, competed in the conception and realisation of a digital product using the Wordpress and Altervista platforms. Today, the authors of the most innovative projects challenged each other in a hackathon, starting with a website or blog created during the classroom training.

The teams had to imagine the promotional launch of their website both digitally (with a social post) and analogically (during a period of imaginary social censorship) with billboards, newspaper advertisements, scripts for commercials, and local or school radio broadcasts. Paola Mogliotti, Director of I3P, introduced the works, while Paola Sabbione, Program Manager "Obiettivo Cultura" of Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo, awarded the students.

"Young talents who are passionate about technology and innovation are always welcome at I3P" commented Paola Mogliotti. "We are confident that the Coding Girls hackathon experience will provide an inspiring opportunity to come up with something new, and we are particularly pleased with the large female participation in the initiative."
