For the first time in its 10 years of existence, the International Competition for Girls in IT Technovation Girls Program was held with the participation of Turkmenistan.
The idea of the contest belongs to enthusiasts from the USA, who also coordinate it. The contest is educational - for 12 weeks, participants aged 8-18 from more than one hundred countries take an intensive course in programming. At the end of the class, the girls have to develop a mobile app, starting with a market analysis, research of the competitive environment and development of a business plan and ending with a video presentation of the project.
The debut of the Turkmen participants was very successful - two projects made it to the final, where they will compete for prizes. The purpose of this contest is to teach the younger generation to solve socially important issues using IT technologies.
