AlgoQueen: The Girl’s Programming Cup 2021 – Promoting ‘Girls in Coding’

ICPC Algo Queen – Girls Programming Cup 2021-2022 hosted by Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is a unique, first of its kind girls only Competitive Programming Contest, as an initiative to encourage girls to participate in Problem Solving and Competitive Programming.

Girls learning coding is a much-needed step towards solving the gender gap problem that continues to plague software programming. Even after having a huge demand for coders, women are significantly underrepresented in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) fields, making it is even more important to show girls, in particular, that learning how to code is not only extremely beneficial, but it can also be fun. Girls Learning Coding is the key to a Bright Future.

Hence, we Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham and ICPCthe oldest, largest, and most prestigious programming contest in the world, puts forward Algo Queen as a first step towards Promoting Girls to ‘Code and Be the Change’.
