Tekla Festival to Egypt on the International Women’s Day

Celebrating the International Women’s Day, the Embassy of Sweden in Cairo will organize a “Tekla” event on March 8 and 9 at the Embassy’s residence.

Tekla is a collaboration between KTH Royal Institute of Technology and the Swedish Institute with the aim to involve more teenage girls in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics). On 8 March a series of workshops for Egyptian girls between the age of 11 and 15 will take place. The following day, a panel discussion will focus on the underrepresentation of women in tech professions and the importance of role models.
