Description

Join us for the first-ever iD 8 Hackathon competition at USM!

Competition is open to teams of four African-American high school girls in Mississippi. No coding experience is necessary! Teams will learn to code, build, and present a mobile app. Winners will take home prizes and a trophy back to their school!

Guests speakers during the two-day event include Ms. Sheena Allen, Founder and CEO of Sheena Allen Apps; USM President Dr. Rodney D. Bennett; Ms. Angelica McKinley from Digital Design at the New York Times; Dr. Mary Moore, aviation engineer at GE and founder of STEM Discoveries; Yetunde Adewunmi, doctoral candidate in Biological Sciences; and Deidra Minor, Director of Applied Technology at USM.

There will be swag and book giveaways, and all meals will be provided. Student teams need to provide their own transportation to and from USM. Attendance of one mentor teacher per team is encouraged.

Please visit iD8create.org for further details. We look forward to seeing you at Southern Miss on Friday, April 7th and Saturday, April 8th!
