Technovation bigger and better in year two, says organizer

A team from Earl of March Secondary School walked away with the top prize this weekend when the second annual Technovation program wrapped up at Carleton University.

The 12-week program, designed to attract girls to potential careers in technology, attracted 100 students who were part of 22 teams from 13 schools across Ottawa.

The Earl of March team developed an app it called Connectsitter, which does exactly what it says: connects parents to babysitters.
