Iridescent’s program gives high school girls the skills and confidence needed to succeed in computer science and entrepreneurship.

While volunteering with Iridescent’s Technovation Challenge, I would often come home from mentoring the group of teenage girls with a smile on my face and a fist pump in the air. “Finally!”
It seemed the only word that fit. Finally, a program for high school girls that exposes them to the startup world, teaches them what it takes to be a high-tech entrepreneur and gives them a glimmer of what they could grow up to become. It’s the “confidence-building-change-your-life” experience fitting for any girl out there. Don’t you wish they had this when you were in high school?
