They’re young, talented and proving that the girls are gutsy in the world of technology.

Danebank Anglican School for Girls and St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School pupils have been part of a Tech Girls Superhero competition that runs across Australia and New Zealand.

The three-month competition saw the group of friends from year 2-6 matched with a female mentor from the IT industry who met weekly with the team.

During this time they identified an existing problem in the community, researched and documented a solution in a structured business plan, and built a working app prototype called Giving Goodness.

The app links donations of unwanted items to organisations including women’s shelters, The Salvation Army and Indigenous associations.
