SheCanSTEM - Shaping the next generation of female leaders

Our hackathon will be a weekend-long event where girls from all over the world will be able to unite virtually in order to create technology-related projects (like websites, mobile apps, robots, anything really!) individually or with groups. We will also have workshops and panels throughout the weekend that we strongly encourage that you attend in order to make more connections and deepen your knowledge about the world of STEM. At the end of the weekend our judges will decide which teams will win prizes by their track, as well as an overall winner. In other words, our hackathon will be an enriching, packed event where you will be able to bond with other women interested in tech while making connections and creating ground-breaking projects, and don’t forget the possibility of winning a prize!
