The Technovation Challenge Program

This spring, over 500 high-school girls from around the country took part in the challenge to build the most innovative mobile app using App Inventor for Android.  Courses are hosted by Google, Microsoft, LinkedIn, Adobe, Twitter, UC Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. 


During the ten-week program, students utilize principles from the Lean Business Model and the Design Thinking process as they develop a prototype, do market research, write a business plan, and formulate a "pitch" for the final competition.  Each team is supported by both a classroom teacher "coach" and a female mentor from the technology industry.


Admission to the National Pitch Event is free. However, you may wish to show your support by making a small donation to Technovation. Simply select the "donation ticket" to sponsor one of the participating schools.  We appreciate your contribution!
