Why Athena Hack?

  • Submit a team and take part in our weekend hackathon presenting ideas for the Circular Economy

  • Join our online event and get involved in the community to discuss all things tech


What if I want to take part in the hack but don’t have a team?

Don’t worry! There are lots of registrants who don’t have a team from the very beginning. You’ll be able to find and chat to others who are looking for a team on our Discord server.

Do I need experience to take part?

Nope - everyone is encouraged to take part, regardless of experience or ability! Practice makes perfect.

Can I just attend the weekend hack?

Yes if you want to! The talks and workshops in the week before will be helpful for everyone taking part in the hack, but you don't have to attend any if you don't want to.

Who can take part?

As long as you are over 18 and identify as a woman or non-binary, you can take part in the hack.

How big should a team be?

The maximum number of members in a team is 5, but anything below that is up to you!

How do I register a team?

Just select the team option on our registration form and you can create your own team!

Is it just open to people in the UK?

No! The timings will be GMT, but with the hack being virtual, it’s open to anyone around the world
