IBM India's five-day camp called IBM EXITE (Exploring Interests in Technology and Engineering), which began on September 29, is aimed at the need to have more women in science and technology.
EXITE camps attempt to attract teenage girls into the world of technical education so that they would consider pursuing technical careers. As part of this year's programme, 31 girls of class IX have been selected from two schools in Delhi. They will work in teams with IBM employee volunteers on innovation projects. The participants will get a chance to present their innovations to local IBM volunteers and executives, who will provide feedback.
