Get Started

We have exciting program updates!

This season we are proud to introduce a new Beginner Division, which will be open to girls ages 8-12, and to introduce a new technology option—teams will now have the choice of developing an AI-powered prototype or a mobile app prototype as their submission project.

Join the movement.

We're girls, mentors, and educators working together to learn and apply technology skills to change the world.

Please note: Registration for students and mentors is  closed for the 2021 season.

Sign up to be notified when registration opens for next season.

Support your daughter and her teammates! You can provide additional encouragement and help – for instance, you can provide a safe space for your daughter and her team to work, connect teams with experts from your professional network, and be an open ear to help them talk through challenges they're encountering. 

You can also create a mentor account and become an official mentor for your daughter's team if they need an additional mentor.

You can also sign up to receive our parent newsletter: 


As a Technovation Girls Judge, you will...

  • Commit 3 hours to reviewing submissions, helping to select 10 finalist teams who will pitch their ideas at our global event

  • Provide feedback to help girls continue learning

As a Chapter Ambassador you will...

  • Spend 5+ hours a week to grow and support your Technovation Chapter (this may grow to 15 hours a week during peak season periods like submission)
  • Recruit participants and mentors

Technovation provides training, program curriculum, mentor recruitment support, marketing collateral and mini-grant opportunities. While experience leading youth STEM programs is beneficial, this is also a great opportunity if you or the organization you represent would like to start offering STEM opportunities to girls. Driven individuals may also volunteer as Chapter Ambassadors with great success!

Connect with your community

Our program is run in chapters and clubs around the world! Both Chapters and Clubs provide a way for students from a school or a local organization to meet and work together towards completing their project. However, there are a few differences: Chapters are bigger than clubs — chapters support 10+ teams across multiple sites (like schools, or community centers), while clubs support between 2 to 9 teams. Chapters are overseen by Chapter Ambassadors, while Clubs are supported by Club Ambassadors.

You can find your local Chapter or Club below, with information about your local leader. If you have questions, get in touch!
