Screen Shot 2014-01-24 at 2.22.13 PMDo you care about increasing the participation of women in STEM? Check out this great program now it it’s 5th year.

Technovation is the global technology entrepreneurship program for girls, with over 1,300 alumnae from 19 countries. Middle school, high school, and university students research, design, build, and launch a mobile app prototype through a 50-hour curriculum over 3 months, with guidance from dedicated teachers and female mentors who are professionals in STEM and business careers. Then they pitch their mobile app “startups” to real investors via YouTube and compete for a chance to travel to Silicon Valley to make live pitches for $20k in awards. It’s free to participate and no prior app development experience is necessary. Learn more athttp://technovationchallenge.org
