About tech createHER

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.

Join us!


Do I have to be a woman to attend?

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.

Who can participate?

Current students or students whom have graduated in the past year may register.

Is this an overnight event?

Nope! We are hosting a single-day event this year on Friday, April 3rd, 2020 and look forward to seeing you there and at future events.

Who is hosting this?

The Lehman College Women in Computer Science (WiCS) is bringing this event to Lehman College and CUNY at large. Check us out online!

Will there be food?

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.

Do I need to know anything to participate?

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.

Is this free?

Yup! No cost to you at all.

What do I need to bring?

Definitely bring your laptop, charger, and anything else to make you feel comfortable during the 12 hours. Comfortable clothing is suggested.
