After school clubs for girls aged 9-14
TechFuture Girls clubs make it easy for employers and teachers to inspire 9 to 14-year-old girls about technology. Girls can experience the fun side of the digital world through creative projects based on real-life challenges from industry.
Schools typically use the resources to run informal sessions for between 30 and 60 minutes, at lunchtime or after school. The resources are mapped to the KS2 and 3 curriculum and give girls the opportunity to work with their friends on activities themed around topics such as music, sport and dance. Through these activities, girls not only learn skills such as coding, cyber security and 3D design, but also softer skills such as team work and communication
Schools can access TechFuture Girls FREE, thanks to Platinum sponsor Hewlett Packard Enterprise and supporting sponsor National Grid.

- Access to 10 learning topics, including over 60 hours of online and more than 150 hours of offline activities
- Unlimited access at home for all staff and students in the school
