Finally the day came, 4 countries: Perú, Colombia, Chile and Mexico gathered to do the G:rl Power Code Fest Americas, an event where more than 200 girls had the opportunity to share and ideate a small prototype that could help to achieve the UN Sustainable Goal Number 3: Health and Well Being.
This event started very early, at 7 pm. In Mexico we had 10 teams, 5 girls from age 12-13 and a teacher each. They all developed basic ideas. At ten, a selected group of judges: 2 Engineers, 1 scientist, 2 teachers talked with the girls and decided the 3 best projects:
