Event description

Description

Have you ever played a game? Have you ever watched an Animation?

Would you like to make one?

Are you interested in technology?

Come to the Stemettes Hack in Clapham!

  • No previous coding experience necessary.

  • Done some coding before? Our experts will teach you how to create games using Alice and Java.

  • Win prizes!

  • Food and Laptops provided - just bring yourself!

Completely FREE, thanks to our wonderful sponsors Oracle Academy and the generous provision of a venue from London Connected Learning Centre. Here's what happened the last time we held a hackathon with Oracle >>

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 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: “Summer Fun” - 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 23rd June 10am-5:00pm

Where
We'll be on site at London Connected Learning Centre. 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
