BlueCrest College Sierra Leone supported & took part in "Technovation Girls Sierra Leone official launch", dated 29th November 2019,Saphyre Court, Kingharman Road, Freetown, Republic of Sierra Leone(West Africa). We are one of the mentor organization for Technovation Girls Sierra Leone. It was a huge success. The girls were taken through the basics of the Technovation curriculum and they were introduced to coding for the first time.
Technovation Girls is a Los Angeles based organization that Equips young women (ages 10-18) to become tech entrepreneurs and leaders. With the support of volunteer mentors, girls work in teams to code mobile apps that address real-world problems.
Technovation Girls will be supported by professional mentors as they identify socioeconomic problems in their communities and develop mobile apps to address these problems. These teams would firstly pitch their solutions at a national level and they would be judged. The teams that make it to the semifinals would then compete with other teams around the world for a place at the finals which would be held in the US in August 2020.
