What is a Coding Weekend?
Coding weekends also known as Hackathons …. Hackathons aren't about breaking into things. They're about bringing people together to create amazing things using computers.
Despite the thousands of women already working in the UK's Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) fields, there exists a lack of young talent in the pipeline. Join Stemettes to experience building your own app and seeing how it's done at companies like Bank of America Merrill Lynch. The event promises to provide a fantastic opportunity to meet and network with STEM professionals and discover new opportunities over light refreshments in a relaxed atmosphere.
- Girls aged 5 all the way up to 22.
- Parents/Guardians. If you're under 16, you'll need to have an adult with you. On the plus side, we'd love it if they helped out with making your game or app!
- Women (and Men) with a STEM background and are interested in inspiring the next generation. (see below for more details)
10am - 5.00pm, Saturday, 20 October 2018
