About this Event


		Superposition V Hackathon image

Superposition V is the Bay Area’s oldest & largest hackathon for female and non-binary high school and college students. We aim to create a welcoming, supportive environment for all women to explore computer science and build their confidence.

This year, we're going virtual! Join us for technical and career-building workshops, networking opportunities, and amazing prizes like Polaroid cameras, gaming equipment, portable batteries, and more.

No coding experience is required. We will hold introductory website and mobile app development workshops the weekend before the hackathon to help develop your coding skills.
