WiT Sponsor Tech Girls are Superheroes Showcase

The Tech Girls are Super Heroes showcase event, led by Dr Jenine Beekhuyzen, took place on November 08, 2015, at QUT The Cube in Brisbane in the presence of The Honourable Leeanne Enoch, Queensland Minister for Housing and Public Works and Minister for Science and Innovation, WiT’s Director of Life Sciences Mathilde Desselle and MC Dr Maggie from The University of Queensland.  (all pictured left)

The Search for 2015 Next Tech Girl Superhero is a national competition for female students in years 4-12 to build and pitch an app.

WiT’s Director of Life Sciences Mathilde Desselle was a judge in the competition and awarded a Women in Technology $1,000 prize to the Queensland finalist, St Aidan’s Anglican School team Pawsout, to move their idea forward.

“The quality of the applications to the 2015 Tech Girls competition has been outstanding. The competition is extremely empowering for the students, who receive fantastic support from their teachers and mentors to make a difference and solve a problem within their community” said Mathilde Desselle.

Pawsout is an app that connects dog owners with dog walkers, and encourage young people to spend more time outdoors and exercise. Users can search for dogs in their area and earn points for every walk they do. Points can be redeemed for prizes. The team
(pictured right) was also the competition’s overall winner and has been offered a 6-month Technovation mentoring program to build their app and become a tech entrepreneur.
