Time to show the world what our Aussie tech girls can do!
If someone would have told me in September 2015 as we were judging the submissions in our second year of the Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero competition that we would be participating in the Technovation global challenge in San Francisco in July 2016, I would not have believed it!
But last week we did! Thanks to TechnologyOne for supporting our trip! Our winning team from 2015, Team Pawsout, are honorary guests in San Francisco at the global Technovation challenge alongside teams from all around the world! In fact, 27 nationalities were represented.
We visited the headquarters of Twitter, Facebook, Intel, Yahoo, Autodesk and Intuit. It was a blast! The team displayed their app among other teams at the University of San Francisco to a wide audience and received some feedback.
If you haven’t yet heard of Team Pawsout then you are missing out. Watch their pitch video here, and read about their recent adventures here and here. The girls are currently in Year 10 at St. Aidan’s Anglican Girls’ School.
Oh and you can read about them in Tech Girls Are Superheroes 2! Get your copy today.
Go Team! More on our excellent adventure soon.
