Event description

Description


NHS England, NHS Digital, and the Department of Health and Social Care 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 Stemettes Hack London @ NHS!

  • 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.

Stemettes Hack London @ NHS 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 NHS Digital and NHS England. Here's what happened at our last hackathon >>

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

Saturday 10th November 10am-5:00pm

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.
