When you enter the college of technology in most Institutions you find that the proportion of male to female students are significantly higher. In my time, there were 50 males to 20 females in the computer engineering Class. There has to be a change and thankfully it is here. Iridescent which is an organization dedicated to the increase of female involvement with STEMS (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Subjects) has developed some programs. One of these global initiatives is called the Technovation Challenge.
Pamela Chukwuemeka (Technovation Mentor) in partnership with Wragby Business Solutions and Technologies Limited will be joining this global initiative in 2017 to help interested young female secondary school students and undergraduates go through and complete the challenge.
The Technovation Challenge is for girls aged 10-18. Girls are challenged to come up with an app idea, conduct user research, create a business plan, build the app prototype and pitch their app to experts for a chance to win part of the $20,000 in seed funding.
Wragby Business Solutions and Technologies Limited as part of her Corporate Social Responsibility is committed to aiding the Technovation Mentors in increasing female interest in Technological Innovation and Transformation. And we will do everything to ensure the winner of the Technovation Challenge comes from our region.
