Swedish recording artist Robyn to launch a festival exclusively for women who are interested in modern day technological career paths.

The current percentage of women in technological working fields is merely 34%. Robin Carlsson, stage name Robyn, is here to change that. Launching Tekla, a festival for girls between ages 11 to 18, the singer aspires to encourage young women to hone and nurture their interest in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

Many young people today are intimidated by technology even though it’s part of our daily regime. To overcome this hesitation with prospective career paths that involve technology, motivational speaking, workshops and of course, an unforgettable performance by Robyn herself, this festival looks pretty damn inspiring to us.
