Connecticut Technovation Challenge Win:

Many congratulations to three RCDS Upper School students, Cecilia van Paasschen, Georgia Mandell and Charlotte Townley, for winning the Connecticut Regional Pitch in the Technovation Challenge last weekend.

The Technovation Challenge is a competition that invites girls from all over the world to solve real-world problems using technology. The app that the RCDS team designed, developed, and pitched is called SheBoss. "SheBoss is a crowd-sourced, salary comparison tool for women. The user is prompted to input her profession and yearly salary, and then is provided with a Profile page that shows the percentage that she is making compared to a male counterpart." More about their pitch can be found here:

The team will now go on to higher levels of competition.
