Apply for App challenge - show your support for the Rosalind Franklin Appathon. This competition aims to empower women to become leaders in STEMM.

last modified Dec 23, 2015 11:12 AM

Applications can be submitted at via the website before 4th January 2016 for a chance to win prizes from a panel of high profile judges, including Baroness Martha Lane Fox (Founder of lastminute.com), Andrew Eland (Director of Social Impact Engineering, Google) and Professor Dame Athene Donald (Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Cambridge). The Awards Ceremony is on 23rd February 2016. 


The competition has two challenges:

Challenge 1: To develop new mobile phone apps to empower women in STEMM. This challenge is open to both women and men.  Ideas to get you started include apps to increase the visibility of role models, improve networking, increase visibility of equality issues and games to educate and inspire children. We’re interested to hear from everyone - from a complete novice with a good idea to an established Women in STEMM group, looking to improve communication among their members  - apps are ideal for busy women on the move! We are offering support for early stage ideas to build a working prototype and will be running a mentoring day in February to connect shortlisted applicants with a range of app mentors- from designers, programmers and developers to business leaders and digital startup companies.   
 
Challenge 2: To recognise leading women in STEMM who have pioneered new apps for research, enterprise and societal good. Help us to identify and support the female role models who are making a difference by submitting a 200 word nomination statement. Organisers would love to see as many applications as possible before Christmas!
