Computer Glitz, a Dakota Hills Middle School team, presented at the Thomson Reuters Unconference on Sept. 9. Computer Glitz is a Technovation team of five middle school girls: Clare Dixon, Nora Dixon, Cece Hodges, Grace Kenney and Ellie Sprinthall.

The team presented information about its business plan and demonstrated the mobile app the team created called Meals On Wheels App. The team worked with Metro Meals on Wheels to understand the volunteer, client and caregiver roles in the MOW organization. Computer Glitz created an android mobile app to make the volunteer experience easier for drivers and administrators. The app also offers clients and their caregivers a unique experience by being more connected to the delivery process.

Computer Glitz competed in the Technovation MN Appapalooza on May 1 and advanced to World-Semi Finals.

Technovation is a entrepreneurial program that challenges girls all over the world to build a business plan and mobile app to address a community problem. Technovation MN, a division of Code Savvy, will kick off the fourth season in Minnesota in January.
