Yes! I volunteered as a mentor and a judge for Technovation this year, sadly I don't think I'll be able to participate as a mentor next year, maybe I'll participate as a judge? not sure! but it was fun :3

not sure since I've never been to one, but I was mentoring a group of girls who had to create a mobile app in thunkable or appinventor that solved a real problem in the world (this is done through months since they also have to do a document, pitches, videos, etc.). Then they would present it in competition both in real life and online :D

It's a pretty cool experience for the girls!

Sounds like a hackathon type of event for sure. Those are amazing to be around in -- the energy is just indescribable. The buzz in the air and the excitement as the group nears the finish line! 😊
