Review for Technovation, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am seeing their work for past 2-3 years and it's pretty impressive how they have been supporting girls from across the world. We attended one of their events last year as one of our friends recommended it - it was the final even in which winners were announced. We got a chance to look at various apps, hear pitch from girls who developed those apps and vote for them too. All we saw was well planned/ executed event, mind blowing apps and excellent attitudes. My daughter who was 8 then was so inspired that she started understanding more about apps the same evening. She even came up with a nice app idea which came to us as a surprise. We never knew she would be so interested in this area.
She's waited eagerly for past 2 years to turn 10 and be eligible for enrollment. She's learning basic coding and is already brainstorming app ideas with her friends. It's so satisfying to see how they've developed a sense of community and come up with such innovative ideas to serve our community. As a mom, I feel so proud to see how she's working as a team together yet demonstrating her leadership skills. In my opinion, this is not just an app making contest, it is a forum for young girls interested in this field to explore their talents and know what they're capable of.
Kudos to the team who encourage girls from all places - some are from towns I didn't even know existed.
Their events are so impressive that it gives you goose bumps. You see young girls, pouring confidence, happy tears, proud parents/ mentors.
Can't wait for my daughter to take this once in a lifetime journey.
