About Technovation Girls 2021
Technovation Girls is a free technology-based program for girls ages 10 – 18. By working in teams (of 1 to 5), girls find a problem in their community and build a mobile app to help solve it. Also, along the way, they develop their collaboration, problem-solving, and leadership skills.
Basically, the program will take 30+ hours to complete (we recommend allocating about 12 weeks to finish) and it’s completely free.
The mission of this initiative is to reach and welcome students and mentors who may not otherwise be able to learn and build technology due to racial, economic, social, and cultural barriers and discrimination. The programs run in over 100 countries with historical and existing biases against women and other underrepresented genders, in particular.
Additionally, Technovation Girls is proud to provide girls and students with identity-reaffirming role models so they can see themselves in technology careers.
