30 middle school girls changing the world with tech
They have created inventions, devices, robots, wearable devices and applications that can change the world.
Every year, project tcsgirls, a national non-profit organization dedicated to narrowing the gender gap in technology by encouraging secondary school girls to pursue computer science and technology, holds a national computer science competition for secondary school girls.
The challenge is simple.
Building something using computer science and technology to help solve pressing social problems under one of three themes --
Global Health, a safer world, intelligent technology.
The 2016 competition attracted more than 600 contestants from 35 states, and the top 30 finalists were invited to the DC project Girl National Party
Learning, collaboration, networking and day activities that support each other.
A group of female technical experts, workshops centered on the concept of \"technology for the benefit of humanity\", Fedora welding, and ballroom events headed by subject notes are all part of the packaging.
Then the final speech.
Ask each team to show 2-
The five-minute speech on the stage of their project to 200Audience.
After the finalists showed their prototypes, shows and apps, the audience\'s jaw dropped, their eyes widened, and the collective whispering became even bigger.
The technical complexity that these girls were able to convey and understand shocked family members, the technical professionals were surprised, the keynote speaker applauded as loudly as possible, and the teachers smiled.
Girls are born with curiosity, innovation and creativity.
Studies have shown that girls are attracted to careers or programs through which they can make a difference, by providing them with tools and platforms to make a difference in technology, we can enlarge their story and they are eager to make the word better.
See how 30 of these young changemakers use technology to change the world and make their voices heard on issues that matter to them --
At the same time break all the stereotypes of girls in science and technology.
Registration of 2017 projects is now open and closed on February 15-
Encourage young changers in life to sign up today!
