Description

The Technovation Challenge is a technological competition for young girls. Divided between Junior (10-14 years of age) and Senior (15-18 years of age) levels, the program asks girls to create a new app that will help with a social problem/question related to their day-to-day reality. The goal of the program is to inspire young girls to use entrepreneurship skills and technology as instruments for guaranteeing the social and economic change they expect to see in the world. Students who have the chance to go to the finals will be immersed in a culturally diverse environment, developing leadership and entrepreneurial skills.
