On Sunday,1st May 2016 saw a number of girls’ schools converge at Gayaza High School for the regional technovation challenge organised by Resilient Africa Network(RAN) of Makerere University School of Public Health.
This is part of the world technovation challenge geared towards equiping the girls with technology skills and to be able to design mobile applications that solve the world problems – http://www.technovationchallenge.org
Gayaza High School Magnates team emerged the best overall team with the Magnates app. Magnates is a business related app aiming at reducing the large percentage of youth who have entrepreneur skills but are not able to exploit them.Our app is able to do this by providing a platform where we link the skilled youth to the potential market. It also connects youth with startup businesses to potential funders.The magnate’s app has a library with videos and pictures for people interested in learning new skills and the news feed for updates. This app is to be used by skilled youth. People in need of skills and developed companies says Geraldine the code specialist.
Gayaza’s Megatons team came second with the Mater-Aid App. Mater-aid is an app that enables a first time mother to keep track of her pregnancy. It will take a mother through every month of the pregnancy with information about her lifestyle. Mater-aid is for expectant mothers in developing countries where antenatal care visits are expensive to ease their anxiety and cut down on unnecessary costly visits.
