“We get an enormous amount out of our contribution to the Tech Girls Movement and the Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero (SNTGS) Competition. This year we have also contributed $10000 to support last year’s National Secondary School winners ‘Domestic Angels’ from Gladstone to get them to the USA in August to visit and pitch to top tech companies such as Ebay, Google, Accenture, Salesforce and Rubrik in Silicon Valley. With our financial support the 2018 winning team from Gladstone, our very first regional winner will be able to join our fourth Tech Girls Movement Foundation Official Ambassador Tour in 2019.”
The Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero Competition is a 12-week STEM entrepreneurship program, where girls aged between 7-17 collaborate efforts in a team and identify a problem within their local community that they would like to solve. They then research the problem, develop a business plan, and build an app that creates a unique means of helping to alleviate the local community problem. Many apps go on to be developed further and to be sold in the various app stores.
