The Presentations & Awards ceremony for the 2021 Inaugural Girls Virtual Reality Team Business Challenge, July 29 - July 30, 2021.

For the past two days, 3 teams of girls age 12-17 have been working hard to develop an innovative VR app to provide solutions to Mental Health issues as part of the United Nations Sustainable Health & Mental Wellness initiative .

Awards to the winning team will include mentorship and startup guidance to take their project to the next level.

The Girls STEAM Institute's first Virtual Reality conference is geared to educate and encourage young girls 12-17 to become entrepreneurs and solve world problems. Twelve girls were chosen by representing diversity in geography, age, culture and were assigned to a team of 4 to develop a business with viable concepts to remedy Mental Health Issues.
