Following three successful iterations of the programme in 2017 covering web development, wearable tech and music technology, this time the theme will be Gaming.

Over 8 weeks girls aged 13 to 17 will be encouraged and inspired to consider a career in technology, learning new creative and digital skills and meeting like-minded girls. An expert industry tutor will lead the course.

Sessions will run on Tuesdays from 23rd January to 13th March 2018, from 6 - 8pm each week in FACT lab. During half term we will have a trip to local gaming company, Lucid. The programme is free to attend with a limited number of travel bursaries also available.

Applications are now open and will close on 8th January 2018. We have just 15 spaces available. Apply now
