Join Technovation’s ‘Girls for a Change’ challenge

technovation logoEvery year Technovation invites teams of girls to learn and apply the skills needed to solve real-world problems through digital technology.

If your daughter’s keen on digital tech, maybe you should check out the website. They’ll work with a team of friends to create, build and market a mobile app – no prior experience is necessary.

This project is generally run through schools (students don’t have to be with Code Champions). So, you’ll need to enthuse your daughter’s teacher to participate. However, we’re happy to help where we can – and can perhaps provide some mentoring.

technovation 1Join a global community of 15,000 girls from 100+ countries and lead the change. Registrations have already opened, with the competition officially kicking off in January 2019.

There will also be an information evening at MissMoos Kitchen (50 Waimarie Road, St Heliers) at 6-7pm on Tuesday, November 13.
