Would you like to make an app (or game) for your mobile phone?
Are you interested in computers?
Come to the Stemettes Hack at Campus London!
No previous coding experience necessary.
Done some coding before? Our experts will teach you how to create complex apps using HTML, CSS and JS.
Food and Laptops provided - just bring yourself!
Completely FREE, thanks to our wonderful sponsors Salesforce, supporters Everywoman and Google's provision of a venue.
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 guys the opportunity to explore and play about in the creative, exciting world of technology.
At this hackathon we'll be building to the theme: 'Networking'. Winners will present their winning apps at the Everywoman Forum 2015 on 17th March.
- Girls aged 5-22 (22+ not in full time employment)
- Parents/Guardians. If you're under 16, you'll need to have an 18+ adult with you. On the plus side, we'd love it if they helped out with making your game or app!
- Women (and Men) with a STEM background and are interested in inspiring the next generation (see below for more details).
Saturday 7th March 9:30am- 5:00pm
Sunday 8th March 9:30am- 5:00pm
We'll be at Campus London. Upon arrival, report to reception to be registered and directed to the Hack.
Full address: Campus London, 5 Bonhill St, London EC2A 4BX
What you need to bring
- Yourself and any great ideas you have.
- If you have access to a mobile phone, bring it along with you.
- We will provide everything else.
Are you interested in helping children learn to code and discover mobile making?
We are looking for adults who have a STEM background to help the girls learn to code, use the AppShed, AppInventor and Thimble webmaker 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 Stemette Supporter.
Tools we will be using
AppShed - Online drag and drop tool for mobile app prototyping
MIT App Inventor - Online tool with visual programming element for creating Android apps
Ratchet - Ready made HTML, CSS, JS framework for responsive site prototyping
