Building apps for social good @TechnologyOne hosts @Technovation #techgirls teams #Brisbane #STEM

On Monday this week, our partner company TechnologyOne hosted 8 of our Search or the next tech girl superhero teams in their office Headquarters in Fortitude Valley in Brisbane. Six mentors from TechnologyOne who are matched with teams from a local primary school, spent the day guiding them through the process of turning their ideas into a working prototype.

Teams started the day meeting with the mentors and going through the work they had completed so far for the app. Then we watched the codegirl documentary. Then one mentor gave advice to all teams on how to implement different parts of the app in app inventor, like the login screen.

The huge lunch spread put on by the TechnologyOne team kept our energy up. At the end of the session all teams pitched their ideas to the rest of the group, and then we finished the day with a tour of the cool TechnologyOne offices.

It was a really great day. We had so much fun and we can’t wait to do it again! Thanks TechnologyOne.
