Robyn’s aim is to inspire young girls to pursue careers in technology.

Next month Robyn will bring the one day Tekla festival to Stockholm, Sweden, Pitchfork reports. In 2013 Robyn received the Great Prize from the Royal Institute of Technology (the same institute whose students built a Robyn robot), now Tekla has been born from their partnership.

“Tekla is a festival for girls, in which they get to sample different areas of future technology in what I believe will be a fun and imaginative environment,” the singer said in a press release. Robyn has said she wants to use the platform to inspire young girls to study technology and break male-dominated traditions of the industry. In addition to a performance from Robyn, the festival will include speakers and workshops.

Tekla will take place April 18.
