Female Youth Hack - Inspiring Stories #2
All it takes to inspire a girl into STEM is one life-changing interaction.
WE ARE BACK for our 2nd all female Youth Hack! A 2 day coding competition where you get to try coding in a friendly environment with professional mentors, but also get inspired by real women in tech sharing their journeys. Through sharing, we all find a common ground, inspiration, hope, meaning, and, ultimately, action.
Who is this for?
This event is for 11-18 year olds (not yet at uni). We will need an emergency contact name and number to allow you to stay unaccompanied.
What do I need?
You just need to bring a laptop and some enthusiasm and be ready to work with other people. (We do have a limited number of PC's we can loan out, let us know when reserving your ticket)
A packed lunch will be provided.
What is the Hackathon?
A 2 day fun team coding competition to test and challenge your digital skills and creativity with prizes.
Companies set challenges and offer prizes for the best hack. This doesn't just mean the best code - its about working well as a team, being willing to learn and daring to fail...
Do I need to know how to code?
This is a fun event where the aim is to work together, learn and produce something cool. If you've never coded or attended an event like this before, don't worry - there'll be friendly mentors on hand to help you out with our new to coding workshops.
