January 2018: CUD is proud to have facilitated the first Technovation class of 2018, held in the University on Saturday Feb. 3rd, 2018
Technovation offers young women around the world the opportunity to learn the necessary skills to become tech entrepreneurs and leaders. Participants will develop a diverse set of skills including leadership, innovation and problem solving skills. They will also acquire coding skills to ensure an increase in the number of women involved in the Tech Industry over the next few decades.
Technovation is available to girls aged from 10 to 18 who learn to identify a problem in their community and create a mobile app solution to address that problem. They will then learn how to communicate these ideas and translate them into a fully launched business.
Regional Ambassadors, Karen Renao Owens and Dr. Hind Zantout carried out a training session for individuals who will be mentoring participants taking part in the initiative.
