On 16 July, the seventh year of the Summer IT School for high school students was officially closed on the 10th floor of the CTU Rectorate. During the evening, teams composed of participants presented their projects they had worked on during the day-long hackathon. While working on the projects, the girls were supposed to capitalize on everything they had learned and learned from the IT world during the week at CTU.

The Summer IT School took place from 12 to 16 July in the classrooms and laboratories of the Faculty of Information Technology of CTU. A total of 27 high school students from all over the Czech Republic came to Prague for a week at the CTU to discover the world of IT together. They gradually got acquainted with the basics of programming, computer graphics and web design. In addition, they visited the Laboratory of Intelligent Embedded Systems and the Image Processing Laboratory at the Faculty of Information Technology of the CTU. They also visited partner companies to gain an understanding of how and where the acquired knowledge can be used professionally.

The IT Summer School is traditionally organized by the CTU in Prague together with Czechitas, an organization that focuses on the education of women in IT.
