Ok, so how cool was the 2015 Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero?!
We had many entries in the competition and all of the ideas were amazing and inspiring.
Unfortunately only one team could be the winner even though there were many top contenders! The national winning team was Pawsout from St. Aidans Anglican Girls School in Brisbane, Queensland. A huge congratulations to Georgia, Robyn, Emmaline & Jessica.
These amazing girls created an app connecting dog owners with dog walkers. 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.
Here is the team pitch video, explaining what is the app and how it works:
Here is the screenshots of the app created:
How amazing is this app, huh?
The entries we received for the competition are the reason we at the Tech Girls Movement keep going. We love providing all girls with an opportunity to be creative, and technology, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) is naturally creative so we see the Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero as a fantastic way to apply these skills. We hope that by participating in our competition, more and more girls will be interested in building their own technology futures. Because every day we have more technology involved in our lives and women should are a necessary part of this evolution.

Can’t wait to see the next part of your adventure, tech girls 🙂
