Event Details

BGC Project Humanity logo



Black Girls CODE is launching our second hackathon series in 2015 which is to be called "Project Humanity"

Our hackathon theme, Project Humanity, will emphasize how girls can create positive change in our world focusing on ecosystem, the earth, and social justice themes. Teams will build apps and solutions that solve problems in this space.

“Project Humanity” is about creating a good and safe environment for both humans and the earth. Our theme broadens the definition of environment to not just include the earth (water, plants, animals, etc.), but also the environments that we (humans) live in.

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is an event where people come together to solve problems by building apps. Youth hackathons are education focused where students work in teams with experienced mentors over a weekend to build apps and tools. You will take part in a youth focused hackathon that encourages creativity and teamwork. Learn how to plan and build apps then demo your solution on stage with your team!

 

Who will be there and what can I learn?

This hackathon is open to girls of all experience levels.  Previous computer camp and STEM exposure is great but if you’re new to coding and building apps, you’re welcome to attend as well!

  • Girls of all experience levels are welcome
  • Girls entering 6th through 12th grade next year
  • Girls who are interested in computer science, STEM, mobile and gaming
