Description

#GTBAppHack with @GoThinkBig

Go Think Big have teamed up with Stemettes to bring you a really unique and exciting event where you can create your very own app!

  • Have you ever used an app?
  • Would you like to make one?
  • Are you interested in technology?

Come to the Go Think Big App Hack at the Hub in London!

  • No previous coding experience necessary.
  • Done some coding before? Our experts will teach you how to create apps using HTML and other app building tools.
  • Win prizes!
  • Food and Laptops provided – just bring yourself!

Go Think Big App Hack is hosted by Stemettes. Stemettes are working hard to inspire and help the next generation of females get into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. While this event is open to everyone, we strongly recommend girls between 15-24 years old attend.

What is a hackathon?

Hackathons aren't about breaking into things! They're about bringing people together to create amazing things using computers. We think it's really sad that some people have never been to a hackathon or had proper fun with computer science, so we want to give you the opportunity to explore and play about in the creative, exciting world of technology.

Who

  • Young people aged 15 and above
  • Women (and Men) with a STEM background and are interested in inspiring the next generation. (see below for more details)

Industry people

Are you interested in helping young people learn to code and discover making?

We are looking for adults who have a STEM background to help the girls learn to code in HTML, Appshed and Appinventor tools and show them the range of possible careers you can do after studying STEM subjects.

All you need to do is provide inspiration and help the girls with their projects when they get stuck.

We will provide food and reasonable transport costs to helpers.

Register as a Volunteer.

Tools we will be using

  • Appshed - online app-creation tool where anyone can design and publish mobile apps for iOS, Android and web
  • Appinventor - visual, blocks language for building Android Apps
  • Marvel - Pop helps you transform your pen and paper ideas into an interactive iPhone or Android prototype.
