Technovation Team for Girls
Does your daughter want to make a difference in her world? If so, she should join the Technovation Team for girls! As part of the Technovation Team, girls will work in small groups to identify a problem in the community, propose a technology-based solution, and learn to program a unique mobile app to address the issue.
Imagine a phone app that could quickly reunite lost pets, connect the poor with resources that they need, or report a problem in the community!
Girls will learn to “code for a cause” and will work with a dedicated coding coach and women mentors through their Technovation team. Each year, Technovation teams solve real world problems through the technology they develop! Since 2010, 23,000 girls in 100 countries around the world have developed mobile apps and startups to solve problems around a diverse range of problems, including food waste, nutrition, women’s safety, and much more. No prior coding experience is needed, but 70% of girls who participate in Technovation will gain the confidence to take more courses in computer science, and 26% go on to eventually major in computer science.
Technovation Team is open to girls in grades 6-8 (grade if enrolled in traditional school by birth date without grade-skipping or acceleration).
The team will meet in a regularly scheduled class time slot from 3:00 pm- 4:30 pm on Fridays for 30 weeks following the Compass calendar.
