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 a hackathon targeted towards college aged females! More specifically, it is aimed at female or non-binary hackers! All genders are welcome to apply and attend the hackathon! It is an all inclusive hackathon.
Welcome to the first-time club! GirlHacks's primary goal is to be a first-time friendly hackathon for students of all ages! We got you covered with our workshops and mentors who will be there through-out the entire event.
The event will be held in a hybrid format. Due to NJIT's Covid-19 Policy, NJIT students can attend in person at the NJIT Campus Center or online. Non-NJIT participants must attend online via Discord. Don't worry, we have so much planned for everyone, whether you're attending in person or online! We can't wait to see you there! The event is free for all of our hackers.
Yes, masks and social distancing will be enforced for everyone's health and safety.
Why don't we build something new? The whole fun of this hackathon is building something new from scratch with a team or alone. We also have a team building session so don't panic if you don't have a team before coming!
Attendees should bring a form of identification, and whatever you need to hack. This includes your laptop, your charger, and any hardware you'll need for your project.
Yes, free overnight parking will be available to hackers at the NJIT parking deck located at 42 Wilsey St, Newark NJ.
