Technovation Girls

Call To Fun — Jun 2023

Promoting entrepreneurship and citizenship through technology.

Technovation Girls, now supported by Celfocus, is a technology education program that empowers girls between the ages of 8 and 18 to become leaders in identifying and creating solutions to community problems. Celfocus is committed to contributing to training and education in the STEM area (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), a bet that is part of the company's broader strategy, which aims to positively impact the community, promoting entrepreneurship and citizenship through technology.

Technovation, created in the United States and present in more than 120 countries, involves recognised professionals, with different levels of experience, who voluntarily share their knowledge with young girls, who have access to knowledge that will be decisive in their lives. Celfocus got involved in this project with a commitment to contribute to the community, supporting young people in training. We selected a group of mentors from our employees to become involved in monitoring and training these young women, believing that the mission of Celfocus goes far beyond the products or services we offer to our customers.Call_to fun_Eva Reis .pngWe believe that it is fundamental to direct energy and creativity so that through technology these young minds can develop fundamental skills for their future lives and for the communities where they will live and work. In this training, problem-solving skills are worked on, stimulating creativity, creating innovative responses, and even in a more supportive way, developing empathy and intervention in the community.

For example, Daniel Moura, one of the Celfocus mentors who helped develop an app to support people who suffer from gender discrimination, defends the added value of this project.​​​​​​​Call_to fun_Daniel Moura.png​​​​​​​Participants must register on the program platform, identifying and explaining a problem. They will then work as a team with their mentors to develop a technological solution to the identified problem, using artificial intelligence models to create an application for mobile devices. In the end, they must present the project, the code, and the supporting documentation that they consider necessary to defend their idea.
