View the Essex Steamettes video playlist on YouTube for some examples of the amazing projects they’ve been working on.



Online activities for girls aged 11-19yrs old (9yrs+ with previous coding experience) who want to learn creative coding, engineering, digital art and the application of technology to solve problems such as climate change, pollution, ageing.
