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: “Remembrance”- Remembering the 100 years since the outset of WW1. 


  • Girls in Years 7 and 8
  • 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)

Saturday 8th November 10am-5:30pm
Sunday 9th November 9.30am- 5:00pm

We'll be on campus at Sheffield Hallam University in the middle of Sheffield. 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 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
