Technovation is a competition for girls to develop an App to solve some social problem. Training in app development and business, enterprise and planning aspects will be provided to groups of up to 5 girls in The Mill Enterprise Centre near Our Lady’s College, starting on Wednesday 16th January from 4 – 6 pm. Interested groups must register beforehand on https://technovationdrogheda.eventbrite.ie
This is a great opportunity for girls interested in learning coding, app development and in improving their business, marketing, teamwork and presentation skills. Juniors must be under 15 on 1st August 2019, while senior can be older. For more details see https://technovationchallenge.org
An except from Evelyn Nomayo‘s initial e-mail is: “My name is Evelyn Nomayo. I am one of the two Technovation ambassadors volunteering ( https://technovationchallenge.org ) to prepare girls that will represent Ireland in a global technology innovation competition taking place in California in August 2019.
To prepare girls for the tech event, we have collaborated with several organisations in different part of the country. Participants will be proffering solutions to identified social problems in their community using an app. Two locations have been earmark to train four teams of five girls each from Drogheda. They are:
1. The Mill Enterprise Centre, Newtown Link Road, Drogheda, Co. Louth
2. Phase Innovate/Northeast College, Dunlin street Aston village”.
We hope that as many girls as possible will take up this fantastic opportunity to get free training in the skills mentioned above and we wish them the best of luck in the competition. The coding is done using a graphical interface which is mainly drag and drop, which should make it doable by complete beginners.
