Would you like to make some cool stuff on the computer?
Are you interested in computers?
Come to the Stemettes Hack at Skimlinks!
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 Skimlinks and their generous provision of a venue in their Central London space.
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: “Scripting and Shopping”
- Girls aged 21 and under
- 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 20th September 9:30am-5:30pm
Sunday 21st September 9:30am- 5:30pm
We'll be onsite at Skimlinks' office in the heart of Silicon Roundabout in London. 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.
- 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 Hakitzu Elite 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.
