Technovation Girls is back, and Noesis supports the initiative once again


The support aimed to foment girls' interest in the IT world

This is the world's largest technological education program, and its main goal is to encourage girls between 8 and 18 years old to have their first contact with the IT world and become more confident in the STEM area, to become leaders, creators, and problem solvers.

A program of mobilization and education for social intervention through the creation of technological solutions (Apps and/or AI), created to promote girls' interest in the IT world.


Noesis participated in Technovation Girls for the second time, organized by Happy Code in Portugal. It invited all its talents to enroll girls of these ages and encouraged our Girls In Tech to join this mission. Over the course of several weeks, teams of girls, with the help of mentors, came together to create solutions that would have an impact on their community.

Participation this year included a new team and a new project. The application "CreateAttack" was developed by the team "Super Heroines of Sustainability", consisting of Marina Galv√£o and Rita Madeira, and with the mentorship of Carolina Oliveira, from Low-Code Solutions.

"Participating as a mentor in Technovation proved to be again a very enriching experience," shared Carolina, mentioning that "it is always very important to integrate these girls in the IT world and see that at the end of the contest they are happy with the application they created and idealized."

This application promotes environmental awareness, through the use of toys and games made with reused materials. It becomes easier and more fun to recycle materials to create DIY - Do It Yourself - projects.

"The initiative has been a success. The girls have the opportunity to make new friends and share ideas to protect the environment and help the community. The mentors play a crucial role in helping implement these ideas and demystify the idea that IT is a man's world only," says Sandra Martins of Marketing & Communication at Noesis and one of the jury members of the program.
