National Computing Science Role Models

To celebrate Ada Lovelace Day we are launching dressCode’s Computing Science role models.

This is a National campaign where we want to help raise awareness of the incredible talent within education at Primary, Secondary, College and University. Let us help you turn role models in your school into National role models for Computing Science!

All you have to do is send us a photo of the pupil(s), their first name, along with a quote from them telling us why they enjoy Computing Science.

All submissions must be sent by teacher using an official school email. Send submissions to support@dresscode.org.uk

Permission slip can be found at bit.ly/PermissionFormAdaScot
