GIRLS ADVANCE Project is a Do-It-Yourself model of experimental learning aimed at giving female secondary students a launch pad for creating solutions to national problems. We want to inspire and empower more girls, especially in the grassroots to become global thought-leaders through technology. We would strategically expose about 100 Girl-children every year (from selected secondary schools) to emerging technologies such as 3D printing, artificial intelligence, internet of things, mobile app development, blockchain, machine learning and virtual reality, and then through a unique designing and prototyping challenge we will enable them to leverage on these technologies to create solutions to specific community problems that would be showcased and followed up for domestication both nationally and globally.
