Girl with DIY Robot

Get to know us a bit better. 

The Award winning TECgirls project is a part of TECwomen CIC. It was set up in 2019 by Caitlin Gould, with the support of a group of women and men in Cornwall who want to change the status quo. Across the UK there is a lack of women in technology, engineering and the creative sectors. This filters down to a lack of participation at the college, secondary and even primary school levels.  Girls just don't seem to be joining in. Our founding group decided to try to tackle the issue as early as possible, looking at ways to help girls as young as 6 realise that TEC is  a girl thing.  

Since 2019 we've worked with thousands of girls across the southwest. We've also worked with primary and secondary schools and have hosted festival s attended by 100's of girls and their families. And we are only just getting started!
