In order to spark interest and inspiration in the ever-impacting world of technology and app creation, eight Project READ girls participated in the ‘Ask the Experts’ event sponsored by The Junior League of Palo Alto-Mid Peninsula and Technovation last week. This was an opportunity for young women in the Bay Area to meet with female experts in the Tech industry. Experts were available to talk about their careers in a round table layout. These experts provided tips, guidance and motivation to become the next Technovation applicants. More specifically our students learned about app development, marketing, finance, project management, UI/UX and pitching/public speaking. This was a motivating event for Project READ youth and staff, exposing our young women to the technological community they live in.
