Invitation for Schools to take part in TECgirls micro:bit Mentors after school club

We are thrilled to announce that in the summer term, we will be offering a new (Free) after-school club for girls in Cornwall and 10 schools are invited to join us to take part. 

The TECgirls micro:bit mentors club will be open to all schools in Cornwall and is for up to 10 year 4 or 5 girls and starts on the 30th of April. This is an 8-week club and this year the focus will be on the theme of smart homes. Each lesson will focus on a different element and all build on the different things you can do with a micro:bit. We are then planning an in-person all-day event where the girls all come together in an all-day event on the 2nd of July to build their own model smart home. We have support from STEM Learning and STEM Ambassadors to run this project and we are aiming to reach 10 schools (100 girls) across Cornwall. 

This club is slightly different to standard afterschool clubs as it is run as a hybrid event. Teachers will be hosting the clubs in the schools and will be working with the girls to turn on and support the tech. Our team will be running the sessions live from a Google Teams meeting. Some additional support in schools may be possible.
