Indian Girls Code | Aditi Prasad | TEDxChennai
Aditi Prasad founded Indian Girls Code to introduce programming and technology to a new generation of coders in India. She sought to empower underprivileged girls in an orphanage in Trichy using coding and robotics. Watch this talk to learn more about this empowering movement. Aditi Prasad, COO and CIO of Robotix Learning Solutions, is on a mission to inspire and educate young girls and boys to learn to code and develop real-world solutions for real-world challenges. Aditi is harnessing the power of robotics, coding, STEM & Maker Space to make school education more interactive and immersive.
Robotix Learning Solutions aims to inspire and equip the next generation of innovators and creators. In 2014, under the aegis of Robotix, they next laid the groundwork for ‘Indian Girls Code’, a free, hands-on coding and robotics education programme for underprivileged girls. The first Indian Girls Code initiative was at an all girls orphanage Annai Ashram in Trichy, Tamil Nadu India, teaching 75 girls coding and robotics.
In India, where technical degrees often lead to better jobs, Aditi is promoting educational pathways that lead to better careers and opportunities for girls. She is helping to make tech studies more approachable and fun, and creating girl game changers in STEM. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
