Description

UST Global 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 UST Global App Hack in Leeds!


  • 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!

UST Global 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.

Completely FREE, thanks to our wonderful sponsors UST Global. Here's what happened at our last hackathon >>

Sign up below.

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

  • Girls aged 5 all the way up to 22.

  • Parents/Guardians. If you're under 16, you'll need to have an 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)

When

Monday 29th October 10am-5:00pm
Tuesday 30th October 10am-5:00pm

Where

We'll be at UST Global's office in Leeds.

Address: UST-Global, 33 Park Place, Leeds, LS1 2RY

  • Yourself and any great ideas you have.

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.

FAQs

Can I attend on only one day?

It is advisable to attend on both days, but we understand that not everyone is able to do that. The projects are designed to take two days: if you attend on the Saturday, unless you work with someone who is doing both days, you cannot win a prize. If you attend on Sunday, you are eligible to win a prize at 'Demo Day'.

Are my boys able to attend too?

Brothers and cousins can attend, but only if they bring a sister, female cousin or female identifying friend with them.
