Congratulations to Emily Bojczuk, Natalie Port, Christine Franklin, Janella Ramos and Holly Worrel who recently took part in the Tech Girl Superhero Challenge. The Challenge aims to increase participation of females in the area of computer science. It tries to break down the stereotypes which prevent more girls taking up STEM subjects.
Teams from across the country work on developing an app that will have a positive impact aligned with an UN Development Goal. Our students designed a gender-neutral character, Codie, which aims to check in with young people. It offers them some space to get some help with developing skills in reflection, breathing/de-escalation and a planner to help with time management.
The girls "Codie" app saw them be named State and National Champions in the Challenge. As new National Champions, they will now get the opportunity to travel to Silicon Valley next year to meet with developers.
We are so proud of these students and the hard work and dedication they have shown throughout this process. We can't to see what comes of their trip next year. Watch this space!
