App Awards for Women in STEMM 2016
We are thrilled to share the news with you that our team at Peapodicity has won University College London’s (UCL) prestigious Rosalind Franklin Appathon.
The UK-wide competition organised by UCL and sponsored by The Royal Society Rosalind Franklin Award, was run earlier this year to promote women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM).
Teams were challenged to design an app to empower women in STEMM, to reach a global audience and use tech as a force for change. The finals were held on 23 February with an amazing panel of judges, including Baroness Martha Lane Fox (Founder of Lastminute.com), Andrew Eland (Director of Social Impact Engineering, Google), Professor Dame Athene Donald (Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Cambridge), Dr Alastair Moore (Researcher and Entrepreneur; UCL Digital Business Labs) and Professor Rachel McKendry (Professor of Biomedicine and Nanotechnology at UCL).
Peapodicity received an award and funding towards developing and accelerating the app. “AMazing STEMM Trailblazers” is due for launch later this year at the app store… Stay Tuned!
