  2. In term one , the members of the technovation club who had made apps went for the regional technovation challenge held in Nabisunsa. Some of the teams were teen globe , work it, diabetic and so on. In this challenge Gayaza high emerged the first with WORK IT an app that deals with Holiday work. The girls won phones and the rest certificates.
