O2 Think Big

Primary Sponsor

Young people are full of ideas, energy and enthusiasm. But they need the right support to turn their ideas into reality.

That’s where Think Big comes in. We find young people with great ideas and help them get going by giving them the training and funding to make their ideas work.

O2 is the driving force behind Think Big because we believe in the power of young people and their ideas. And as one of the biggest companies in the UK, we can back them. Invest in them. Campaign for them. Give them a platform and a voice.

We want to change the way young people think about themselves and their communities. And in doing so, change the way young people are perceived.

Geek Gurl Diaries

Stemette Supporter

The Geek Gurl Diaries on YouTube is hosted, written and produced by Carrie Anne Philbin.

They are a collection of video logs about using technology and interviews with inspirational women in the fields of computing, science, technology and engineering. They also include video contributions from women working in IT and Science, and recently the channel has started to include ‘Geek Gurl Diaries On Air’ panel discussions with graduate computer science students on various topics like computer gaming and geek culture.I have done very little marketing, but found organic growth through the teenage girls I'm targetting "liking" the Facebook Page on which I publicise the video episodes.

I hope this project will give teenagers first hand access to content that will inspire them and perhaps nurture an interest in subject areas they have dismissed before. To do this I require inspiring individuals, both male and female, to contribute ideas, videos and interviews to make this project a success. I need teachers to introduce the channel to their students and furthermore we need people to talk about this subject in order for us to change the stereotypes.
