Women code

Tech Tribe

We had planned to start ‘Aberdeen Tech Tribe’ in March. Covid-19 had other plans. We’re now relaunching this programme to help women get back into STEM employment and education.  It will run online until we can meet in person again in the ONE Tech Hub on Schoolhill where we are based.

We are grateful to The Data Lab not only for providing the sponsorship which will help make this happen, but also for our other activities such as our monthly Data Meetup, which is fantastic.

When we launched the programme on 28 Jan 2020 and by 11 am the following day we were already oversubscribed. If you too would like to join us, then go sign up at on TypeForm.

The current plan is to meet online to discuss topics and to mentor participants.  We hope to be able to increase our capacity as we get more mentors onboard. If you would like to volunteer as a mentor please get in touch. We use the STEM Ambassador programme to to ensure that all of our mentors are PVG-checked.

Our sessions initially cover

  • Coding in Python
  • Building websites in HTML/CSS/Javascript
  • Blogging, newsletters, design
  • Developing business models
  • Collaborative working online with tools e.g. Trello, Slack and Google Suite

We’ve also started a Tech Tribe Resources page with suitable links on these topics.
