Women in Informatics

Edinburgh Hoppers (the Hoppers), our student-run women in technology group,  has been going strong since September 2005. Hoppers organise a regular programme of activities, work with the School's Equality and Diversity Committee to promote women in tech and provide a peer-support network for female students in the School. The group is named after computer science pioneer Grace Hopper.
