A novel about the wonders of working in tech, aimed at girls and young women. The project is an initiative of Inspiring Fifty, a non-profit that aims to increase diversity in tech by making role models more visible.
Project Prep tells the story of four 13-year-old girls as they begin to discover new worlds: technology, entrepreneurship and learning how to code. It's a story about technology but also friendship, love, fashion, NY and all other things in the life of a 13-year-old. The girls come across all the challenges, setbacks and successes any technology entrepreneur faces. But most importantly they discover how magical working in technology can be — that amazing feeling that comes from seeing an idea become a reality, something you can actually use and that is impacting other people’s lives for the better.
The project is an initiative of Inspiring Fifty and a joint effort of serial technology entrepreneur Janneke Niessen and best-selling children’s author Niki Smit, with illustrations by famed artist Josselin Bijl. This is a non-profit initiative and the funds that will be made with the book will be used to further support the activities to increase diversity in technology.
Project Prep is a book aimed at girls and young women, providing visible role models to highlight the wonders of working in tech.
"Technology means possibilities, innovation and creativity. A lot of young girls have a totally different view on tech though. They think it is boring and difficult and they don’t see how it would fit in their future. That is why we want to create a role model for them, one they can relate to, that can bring the possibilities of tech to life and make it relevant for them." - Janneke Niessen, Creator of Project Prep
The book’s Dutch edition was launched with the support of Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, where it is a best-seller with over 35,000 copies sold. Project Prep has become a movement in its home country and now aims to do the same in the UK to inspire and empower girls to work in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
