Students from the Princeton College, Lagos, Nigeria (all female), emerged winners of the 2019 African regional Technovation Contest.

Frostbits will leverage the use of location sensors, database, and app inventor’s interface. Through this app, users will be able to park their cars seamlessly without worrying about interference from other drivers. This innovation came out tops at the Senior Division Regional 2019 Technovation contest.
