ČIPke collaborate, and pull our threads through a variety of different activities in the field of electronics, mechanics, and digital technologies. We promote the use of free and open software and open source licensing. We are dedicated to empowering women offering a range of technological skills. We specifically address women of different social strata, making all our workshops free of charge while providing funds for materials and mentors.
