Meet the 2016 Tech Girls Are Superheroes Ambassadors!
Team Pawsout - Georgia, Robyn, Emmaline and Jessica from St. Aidans Anglican Girls School are the Qld Finalists and the National winners of the 2015 Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero!
Their app connects hectic dog owners with teenagers needing exercise. It encourages young people to spend more time outdoors and exercise by searching for dogs in their area to earn points for every walk they do. Points can be redeemed for prizes. The team are featured in our new book Tech Girls Are Superheroes 2.
Team Vocabulary Voyagers - Alice, Teale, Kira and Delaney from St. Marys Anglican Girls' School are our WA Finalists in the 2015 Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero! Their app is a literacy improvement game which encourages an improvement in the spelling and vocabulary of primary school students.
This app is needed because in Australia there has been a big drop in the literacy levels of our young people. Watch their pitch video here.
Team Emma's Wagon - Emma is the NSW Finalist and one of our youngest competitors in the 2015 Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero at just 9 years old. Emma's app is called Emma’s Wagon and it helps parents to organise carpools and offer rides to school. Carpooling helps reduce traffic and pollution and saves parents time, but scheduling rides can be difficult. This app makes it easy and safe for parents to organise carpools and offer rides to school or extracurricular activities. Parents can request and approve rides for their children, which are automatically scheduled and Google-mapped.
Team Pinchapoo - Franziska, Hasti, Ananya, Aisha & Phoebe from Box Hill State High School are our VIC finalists in the 2015 Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero. Their app includes all locations which accept donations, image taking features to share what you would like to donate and the capability of cash donations from your phone. They say "If you want to make a difference the Pinchapoo app is for you!"
