Every year, Technovation invites teams of girls from all over the world to learn and apply the skills needed to solve real-world problems through technology.

Technovation Girls is a free technology-based program for girls ages 10 – 18. 

Working in teams (of 1 to 5), girls find a problem in their community and build a mobile app to help solve it. Along the way, they develop their collaboration, problem-solving, and leadership skills. Technovation Girls will take 30+ hours to complete (we recommend allocated about 12 weeks to finish) and is completely free.
