About The Girls In Tech Weekend

Appening Rhondda is a collaborative approach between schools, charities and private businesses to foster IT development skills in Rhondda young people.

It was created from the partnership working of Stronger Rhondda, an initiative to bring people and groups in the South Wales together to answer local needs. The project was established to address the growing concern that many students are not being challenged in technology development. We found many young people with naturally developed skills in coding and design lacked the opportunity to explore those interests before moving on to 6th form, college or the world of work.

How does it work?

A group of 5-10 young people come together for a full weekend to work under the mentorship of professional tech developers and create a new piece of tech from start to finish.

So, what are you going to do this half term?  Sit around all day playing games and watching Netflix…  Just like everyone else?

Or maybe you’d rather build a website using big data and machine learning with professional developers just down the road.

If you’ve ever wanted to know more about the tech industry and opportunities in Wales, this is your chance.
