Equipo de mentoras

>Would you like to mentor high school students and help them present an app project?

>Your participation in Technovation Girls will be recognized with 3 optional credits.

Technovation Girls is an entrepreneurship and technology program for inspiring girls and young women between the ages of 10 and 18 to become leaders and innovators. Technovation Girls aims to reduce the technological gender gap that currently exists. This initiative started in 2009, and since then, more than 15,000 girls from 100 countries have taken part in it.

Who is it for?

UC3M students can participate as mentors supporting a team of five girls and young women, working with them and helping them to develop an app focused on solving problems in different social areas: health, education, peace, poverty, equality, environment, impact of Covid 19...

No previous knowledge of app design is required. In this program, not only technology is present, but also other aspects 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. Applications are open to students from second year undergraduate, graduate and master's degree students.

Interested students must present a certificate of absence of crimes of a sexual nature, a prerequisite for working with high school students. It will be given until the end of the training to present it. It can be requested at this Ministry of Justice web link.

Each team of girls will be mentored by two UC3M students.

The project will run from January to April 2023.
