Help us show the world what the next generation of women can really accomplish.
Become a technology entrepreneur and develop a mobile app prototype that solves a real problem in your local community. Teams of up to 5 girls work together to research, design, and build a mobile app prototype, working with a female mentor in technology or engineering. Then they pitch their apps to prospective investors and receive feedback and ideas from technology industry professionals. Most teams use MIT’s App Inventor to build their prototypes.
Technovation Teachers might be school teachers, after school program leaders, parents, or community leaders. They recruit teams of young women to participate in the program, provide a safe space with internet access where they can work, coordinate with the teams’ mentors, and supervise their teams throughout the 3-month program.
VOLUNTEERS & EXPERTS
Each mentor works with a team of girls to guide them through Technovation’s curriculum. Girls see their mentors as role models and look to them for guidance on how to overcome obstacles and solve problems when working on challenging projects.
Our primary goal is to give girls confidence in computer science and entrepreneurship. We provide girls with a safe all girls community which helps them feel like they belong in the technical world. We provide a platform for girls to pair with professional female role models who can inspire and encourage them.
