Anyone can use Technovation’s free online curriculum, but participation in Technovation’s official competition is limited to girls.
Women are highly underrepresented in the technology fields. Research shows that women are more enthusiastic and engaged in STEM courses when they are in an all-girls environment because they feel comfortable participating and asking questions. We aim to provide that safe environment and provide the girls with role models so they can see themselves in technology careers.
Other technology and entrepreneurship initiatives are co-educational such as FIRST, SMASH, and BUILD, but Technovation is just for young women.
