New Year, New Challenges

What an eventful year we have had – visits to Manchester University, Cisco at Bedfont Lakes, Cisco HQ in San Jose and of course meeting lots of new friends – Heidi Rhodes, Silvia Spiva and our new extended Cisco family plus my ever expanding LinkedIn network.

The profile of Computing within our school is on the increase and the interest of girls too. This year the number of girls who chose to study Computing at GCSE level has risen from 2 to 9 let’s hope that this continues to increase.

We are actively working on developing our app idea with Adam Roberts from Enigmatic Flare – more details to follow.

So last year 5 girls were involved in the Technovation Challenge, our aim this year is to at least double this number. TechGirlsUK will be the leading force with next years entries and work as mentors too.

We are currently looking at sponsorship – you never know ….. We may need another trip to San Francisco!

More details to follow very soon …….
