We are expanding the Technovation Girls program to include younger learners and to better support parents to participate as mentors. We will no longer be running the Technovation Families program (but the curriculum and design challenges are still available for free). Technovation Girls will be expanding in the following ways:
New division for younger students—the Beginner Division
The Beginner Division is open to girls ages 8-12. The new Technovation Girls division structure will be:
- Beginner Division: ages 8-12
- Junior Division: ages 13-15
- Senior Division: ages 16-18
Important Note: Teams will be judged based on the age of the oldest girl on the team. This means that if a 13 year-old girl joins a team of 12 year-old girls, that team will be judged in the Junior Division.
New technology option
Girls around the world will still be learning to create technology to solve community problems, but beginning this year teams in all Technovation Girls divisions can now choose to develop a project that uses artificial intelligence (AI) technologyOR to develop a mobile app prototype.
We are expanding our curriculum to provide more support for students building AI projects. These units will include information on
- artificial intelligence
- data sets
- other resources for building with AI
Registration will open later
Registration will open in early December 2021, and close in late March.
- Curriculum for Junior and Senior Divisions will remain available year-round, so students can start working on their projects early, and then register in December.
We will share a full season calendar in October. You can sign up to receive an email notification when registration opens.
