Since 2010, over 39,000 girls from over 100 countries have created mobile apps with the Technovation Girls . With the help of volunteer mentors these girls have been able to solve problems in their local and global communities around the world. 58% of alumni enroll in more computer science courses after participating in the program, helping female students develop a greater interest in technology and leadership.
No prior knowledge of app design is necessary. In this program, not only technology is present, other aspects are considered such as the development of a marketing and communication plan , the recording of a video , and above all the desire to solve a social problem . The project will be carried out from January to April 2023 . In Catalonia, Associació Espiral is in charge of producing the event. You can find more information here .
