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 a theme: “Christmas”- by then it'll be right around the corner! 

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 28th November 10am-5:00pm
Sunday 29th November 10am- 5:00pm

Where
We'll be on site at UTC@MediaCity UK which is right by the Broadway light rail station and opposite the MediaCityUK development in the heart of Salford. Upon arrival, report to reception to be registered and directed to the Hack.

What you need to bring

  • Yourself and any great ideas you have.
  • If you have access to headphones, please bring them with you.
  • We will provide everything else.

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

We are looking for adults who have a STEM background to help the girls learn to code, use the Netbeans (Java) and Alice 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

Alice - a free, educational, introductory environment for creating Animations and Games.

Netbeans - a free development environment
