Dinapsis will present five new teams at the Technovation Challenge programme, the largest worldwide technological enterprise programme for girls. The main aim of this initiative, headed by the non-profit company Iridescent, is to bring technology and entrepreneurship to young girls to promote their interest in scientific and technological careers, reducing the gender gap in these fields, which are increasingly in demand by business.
Last year’s regional finals, held at the Technical University of Valencia, brought together 282 girls, 74 mentors, 33 judges, 34 volunteers and numerous parents. A total of 5 young girls out of the 65 participating teams were selected for the world virtual semi-final. These included two Dinapsis teams. Two other teams from the Hidraqua technological centre in Benidorm fell just short of the semi-final but were given a special mention.
