Date: October 11th, 2014
California State University, San Marcos (CSUSM) will be participating in the International Women’s Hackathon on October 11th, 2014!
The International Women’s Hackathon is sponsored by Microsoft Research to empower young women leaders in computer science. The event is open to all female students, ages 16 and older. Teams of 4 – 6 girls will make a website, game, cloud based service, application, or mobile app to address one of the two challenges: visualizing the impacts of climate change or preparing for effective response after natural disasters.
The Hackathon will be a crowd-sourced event with multiple campus locations across the globe. At the Cal State San Marcos location, we are planning a fun learning environment for the girls to get more exposure to computer programming, IT pros, mentors, companies and community members involved in this vibrant industry.
