TechFuture Girls (formerly know as CC4G) is an out-of-the-box after-school club that has been specifically designed to encourage girls to stay engaged in IT.
It helps girls develop their tech skills through a series of fun challenges, themed around their interests – like music, sport and dance. Running TechFuture Girls doesn’t need any specialist IT expertise or software, it’s fully curriculum-compliant, and girls love it. It supports girls’ learning in IT and across the curriculum, and benefits their confidence and self-esteem.
And now, thanks to Platinum sponsor Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and supporting sponsor National Grid, TechFuture Girls is available free of charge to all schools in the UK.
