Every year, Technovation Girls equips young women ages 10-18 with the skills to become tech entrepreneurs and leaders. With the support of volunteer mentors, girls work in teams to code mobile apps that address real-world problems they’ve identified. Learn more about the program by visiting the Technovation Challenge website. This program is run in partnership with SFU’s Applied Sciences Outreach.
As a Technovation GirlsBC Student you will:
- Identify a problem that matters to your community
- Learn to code an app that solves the problem, and develop other skills along the way!
- Collaborate with peers and learn from industry mentors
