  • Create a project in which the students will be able to apply and develop their knowledge of science, mathematics, computers, art, and languages;
  • Develop a practical application that will define the link between topics learned in the classroom and its application in the workplace;
  • Encourage young women to pursue a career within the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM);
  • Promote the achievement of a common goal by cultivating teamwork among all students;
  • Teach students that the pursuit of excellence is more important than winning;
