We are proud to announce that the very first Awesome Foundation Stockholm grant goes to Geek Girl Mini – Kvarnbychix!
Geek Girl Mini is all about introducing young girls to alternative future careers and increasing their understanding of the digital world. This project focuses on helping girls that might not have as much access to technology at home as other children in Sweden. Therefore is the first project being introduced in the Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby.
The grant from Awesome Foundation Stockholm will support this awesome idea to fund purchases of toolkits such as makey makey and arduinos. It will also make it possible for the girls to get their own Geek Girl Mini – Kvarnbychix t-shirts as they wanted.
Congratulations to Karin Nygard who runs Geek Girl Mini and thank you for bringing a brilliant idea to life and showing young girls the possibilities of the digital world!
Funded by Stockholm (October 2014)
