Hi! Welcome to TECgirls a resource for girls, parents and educators to encourage young girls to join in with Technology, Engineering and Creative activities and clubs around Cornwall. 

TECgirls was set up by 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.
