Celebrate International Women's Day and Women's History Month with Chic Geek. In partnership with the U.S. Consulate General Calgary, we're hosting a screening of CODEGIRL, a documentary about high school aged girls from around the world as they try to better their communities through technology and collaboration.
By 2017, the app market will be valued at $77 billion. More than 80% of app developers are male. The Technovation Challenge aims to empower girls worldwide to develop apps for an international competition. From rural Moldova to urban Brazil to suburban Massachusetts, CODEGIRL follows teams who dream of holding their own in the world’s fastest-growing industry, technology. The winning team gets $10,000 to complete and release their app, but every girl discovers something valuable along the way.
