High School Girls and the Technovation Challenge

How do we get more women in computer science? App Inventor may be part of the answer.

This year’s Iridescent Technovation Challenge has expanded to NYC and Socal along with the Bay area. This is a program where high school girls spend two nights a week learning app development and entrepreneurship, aided by college students and young professionals. NYC’s program was featured in a PC Magazine article. Three USF students– Jenny Horowitz, Julia Cahill, and Melody Garcia–  are instructors at the San Francisco Challenge taking place at Google’s SF offices.
