About Technovation Challenge:

This spring, girls from 24 states and 19 countries are taking part in the challenge to build an app that solves a problem in their local community.

Technovation Challenge encourages a suite of transferable skills in middle and high school girls that reach beyond a traditional, classroom-based computer science curriculum. Participants create an original and socially relevant mobile app while working as part of a team. The Technovation World Pitch event challenges finalists by asking them to communicate their ideas, process, and final product to an audience and panel of experts. Each team is supported by a coach (teacher or other adult) and when available, a female mentor from the technology industry.
