tech createHER challenge is a hackathon, renamed as a tech challenge to be more inviting of women at all skill levels. The challenge will bring together women from diverse educational and technical backgrounds to create, innovate, and collaborate on technical solutions to real-world problems. We are creating a community that will help close the gap of women leaders in the tech industry and encourage more women to seek careers in tech.
Lehman College Women in Computer Science (WiCS) is looking to build a community where marginalized people in tech like women can feel welcomed and ready to take on an exciting challenge. To accomplish this, we need all hands on deck! As such, we do not require identification as any specific gender to attend but do encourage you to leave an opportunity open to those who may not have had this opportunity before.
Current students or students whom have graduated in the past year may register.
Nope! We are hosting a single-day event this year on Friday, May 10th, 2019 and look forward to seeing you there and at future events.
The Lehman College Women in Computer Science (WiCS) is bringing this event to Lehman College and CUNY at large. Check us out online!
Of course! We've got you covered for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. We haven't forgotten about refreshments either. If you have a food allergy, please note that in the registration form so we are aware.
Not at all. We will have curated online resources available before the challenge to walk you through some concepts that may help throughout the challenge but no prior technical experience or advanced skills are necessary.
Yup! No cost to you at all.
Definitely bring your laptop, charger, and anything else to make you feel comfortable during the 12 hours. Comfortable clothing is suggested.
Maximum of 4 per team.
Doors open at 9 AM sharp for registration. Join us for some breakfast before the opening ceremony.
It's going to be an amazing day. Find out what we have in store for your challenge!
We aren't leaving you hungry. Besides snacks and plenty of coffee and refreshments, we'll have lunch ready to fuel you.
What's a full day of building and designing without some dinner? We got you!
