Challenge to Girls to Become Tech Entrepreneurs
Technovation offers girls around the world the opportunity to learn the skills they need in order to emerge as tech entrepreneurs and leaders. Technovation invites girls to identify a problem in their community and then challenges them to solve it.
Search and Rescue Game
A distress call from an emergency beacon goes off somewhere in the world. Satellites orbiting high above Earth receive the signal and relay the person’s location to search and rescue crews on the ground. In Rescue 406, an iOS mobile game by NASA, students use the information from these satellites to direct the rescue effort.
