Congratulations to Team Bluescreen in becoming one of three teams to make the Secondary School State Final for the Tech Girls are Superheroes competition. This is an amazing achievement for the girls in the team and Mrs Elke Schneider who has worked with them as their teacher-mentor this year.

The Techs Girls are Superheroes competition requires teams to not only ideate, design and create an app, but also fully research their social issue and create a detailed business and marketing plan. The REVIBE app created by Team Bluescreen is aimed at assisting people in dealing with mental health issues, and is targeted towards youth.

- 2017 - T3 - W5 - Tech Girls Team Bluescreen

This is only the second year that we have entered teams in this very tough competition and with an ever increasing number of teams entering, it is a great result. Three of the four girls in this team worked with Mrs Schneider and entered in 2016 and clearly gained valuable experience and insights.

The team comprises of:

  • Valerie Fang

  • Rhiannon Lloyd

  • Azaria Barr-Hamilton

  • Cassidy Fifield

The final for Tech Girls are Superheroes is being held next Sunday 3 September 2017 at QUT, with the Minister of Innovation in attendance. We wish the girls all the best as they display the app they have built that provides a very innovative solution to a local problem in our community.

Well done to Team Bluescreen and all other three teams that entered this year for their achievements and entries.
