An-Najah University Participates in Launching Girls’ Tech Competition
Dr. Mona Demaidi, Ms. Yamama Shakaa and Ms. Ruba Awais from An-Najah University’s Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, recently participated as keynote speakers in launching Girls’ Tech Competition in Palestine.
The competition aims to equip young women (ages 10-18) to become tech entrepreneurs and leaders. With the support of volunteer mentors, girls work in teams to code mobile apps that address real-world problems.
The winning team at the local level will be chosen to represent Palestine at the international level of the competition.
The Girls’ Tech Competition is an annual Technovation Girls program in which girls ages 10-18 from different countries around the world are tasked to develop a mobile application to solve an issue they've identified in their community.
The competition is run by Technovation, a global tech education nonprofit that empowers children and adults to become more confident leaders, creators and problem-solvers.
It offers interactive learning programs in which young people ages 8-18 and adults in their community learn how to use AI and app-based technologies to solve real-world problems.
Every year, Technovation invites teams of young people from all over the world to learn and apply the skills needed to solve real-world problems through technology.
