Skool is a non-profit organization and a flagship project in Hungary whose mission is to introduce the world of coding to young girls and underprivileged groups. In partnership with Sigma Technology Hungary, Skool organizes fun workshops and events, where young talents try on roles from the IT world and encourage girls to opt for the tech sphere.

Szilvi Koleszár and Zsófi Major became the drivers and co-founders of the project. Dr. Felde Imre, Vice Dean of John von Neumann Faculty of Informatics at Óbuda University, helped the startup project to develop a curriculum. Soon after that Péter Guzsaly joined the team and helped with operations and marketing development.

What started as a hobby project has today helped over 2,500 girls. Skool has made it in over 600 articles in both Hungarian and international media. They have over 8,500 followers on social media and have participated in several international events to present their project. They also run a programming contest in the Visegrad Group countries and Skool workshops in Vienna.
