Description:
Are you the parent or guardian of a girl who is interested in technology, mobile and games? This summer, girls between the ages of 12 - 17 are invited to attend our all girls hackathon to build their skills and experience with app development!


What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is an event where people come together to solve problems by building apps. Youth hackathons are education focused where students work in teams with experienced mentors over a weekend to build apps and tools.

You will take part in a youth focused hackathon that encourages creativity and teamwork. Learn how to plan and build apps then demo your solution on stage with your team!

Check the official website to see when the next Bay Area Hackathon will be (was 9/22-9/24 in 2017)!

Cost and Scholarships

Each student ticket will be $35 (all inclusive for all three days) and include snacks, meals, tshirt, and all other hackathon activities. Limited scholarships are available by emailing your request via future@blackgirlscode.com.
