GirlHacks stemmed from the NJIT WiCS on campus. WiCS is an organization that engenders and supports NJIT's growing community of women studying in the fields of computing and technology. Through WiCS, members develop their skill set at student-hosted workshops, participate in mentorship, and network at national conferences. GirlHacks aspires to extend this mission and to create NJIT's women centric hackathon!
We are aiming to create an hackathon targeted towards college females! At this time we cannot accommodate to high school students. More specifically, it is aimed at female or non-binary hackers that will be at least 18 at the start of the hackathon, you are eligible to attend! All other genders are welcome to apply and attend the hackathon! It is an all inclusive hackathon.
Welcome to the first-time club! This is the first time GirlHacks is happening and our primary goal is to be a first-time friendly hackathon! We got you covered with our workshops and mentors who will be there through-out the entire event.
Yes! The event is 100% for all of our hackers. You will be provided with snacks, meals, and a ton of swag! However, sadly as of now we cannot provide reimbursements for travel cost. If anything changes we can we will notify you!
Why don't we build something new? The whole fun of this hackathon is building something new from scratch with a team or alone. Oh ya we also have a team building session so don't panic if you don't have a team before coming!
Bring a laptop, charger, headphones, hardware you might need (we will have a MLH Hardware Lab), hygiene products, a change of clothes, a pillow, blanket, etc. Also bring your resume to hand out to our sponsors!
