Last weekend, Technology One and the Tech Girls Movement Foundation hosted local Brisbane #techgirls and their mentors for a Hack Day at T1 HQ. The teams spent the day working on their app building and business plans with guidance from super mentors at Technology One.
The day was enjoyed by all - summed up by teacher and repeat tech girls coach Alison Jones from Craigslea State School:
"The girls were so excited. It was a really great afternoon. The girls got to talk to mentors. We met ours for the first time. We watched pitched videos from other schools and then reflected on what makes a good pitch video and what they want to include in their own. There were green screens set up so the girls got to practice reading and performing with a script. We came away energised, motivated and enthused to continue on our own tech girls journeys. Personally I found it helpful having to trouble shoot some technical issues I was having. I got some good advice from other Technology One Super-Mentors. We are all super pumped to get stuck into working on our deliverables.”

It’s clear all teams and their mentors had a fabulous day and took away so much from the experience. Thank you Technology One for supporting #techgirls!
