• Cuộc Thi Sáng Tạo Phần Mềm Dành Cho Nữ Sinh - Technovation Challenge 2017 - Cơ Hội Nhận Giải Thưởng $10,000 Và Chuyến Đi Đến San Francisco
    Hạn cuối: 26/04/2017

    Deadline: April 26, 2017

    Applications are now open for the 2017 Technovation Challenge. In partnership with Google’s Made with Code and UN Women, Iridescent has launched the 2017 Technovation season to encourage young women around the world to code for change. Every year, Technovation offers girls around the world the opportunity to learn the necessary skills to become tech entrepreneurs and leaders.

    Girls ages 10 to 18 learn to identify a problem in their community and create a mobile app solution to address that problem, and then learn how to communicate these ideas and translate them into a fully launched business. Join the competition now to code for change, and develop an app to change your world for the better, inspired by the United Nation’s Global Goals.

    Program Details

    Since 2010, more than 10,000 girls from 78 countries have participated in Technovation. With the help of volunteer mentors, they’ve produced mobile “startups” that have helped address problems in local and global communities the world over. And while each year more and more girls take up the challenge, we know that there are always more problems to solve … and that there are girls from every part of the world ready to solve them.
