Deadline: March 2022
Every year, Technovation invites teams of girls around the world to learn and apply the skills needed to solve real-world problems through technology.
Technovation Girls program is expanding to include younger learners and to better support parents to participate as mentors. We will no longer be running the Technovation Families program (but the curriculum and design challenges are still available for free).
The program will be expanding in the following ways:
New division for younger students—the Beginner Division
The Beginner Division is open to girls ages 8-12. The new division structure will be:
- Beginner Division: ages 8-12
- Junior Division: ages 13-15
- Senior Division: ages 16-18
Important Note: Teams will be judged based on the age of the oldest girl on the team. This means that if a 13 year-old girl joins a team of 12 year-old girls, that team will be judged in the Junior Division.
New technology option for Technovation
Girls around the world will still be learning to create technology to solve community problems, but beginning this year teams in all Technovation Girls divisions can now choose to develop a project that uses artificial intelligence (AI) technology or to develop a mobile app prototype.
We are expanding our curriculum to provide more support for students building AI projects. These units will include information on
- artificial intelligence
- data sets
- other resources for building with AI
More details, including the updated curriculum, will be released in late 2021. The curriculum for Junior and Senior divisions is available now at technovationchallenge.org/curriculum. Submission guidelines will be updated by October.
