What We Do
"A ship in port is safe, but that is not what ships are for. Sail out to sea and do new things." - Grace Hopper
Considered Hoppers' main focus, our events concentrate on gathering women interested in technology, as well as providing the opportunity for them to develop their skills in this field. Here's the range of events we offer:
Lunch & Learn
The Hoppers lab lunches are a good chance for girls to learn something interesting, mingle and chat while enjoying some quality free food (Pizza is quality, right?). Execellent for meeting coursemates. Disclaimer: lifelong friendships may be formed.
As a Student of Edinburgh University:
We're currently setting up a travel scheme to enable more of our students to travel to conferences related, but not restricted, to academia and technology. Our aim is to encourage both undergraduates and postgraduates to attend these events as they provide excellent opportunies for expanding knowledge, discovering interests and meeting invaluable contacts in both the industry and academia.
As an attendee of one of our events:
We would love to fund travel to our events, however, this is not always possible as it depends on the budget available to us per event we organise. If we do secure finances to allow for this, we advertise the possibility along with the event.
