We are excited to announce that cleverbridge will be hosting She Hacks Chi, a hackathon to close the gender gap on Friday, October 16th and Saturday, October 17th.

At She Hacks Chi, teams will build an application, website, or game that will get girls ages 8-15 interested in STEM. The hackathon will bring beginner and intermediate coders together with experienced developers to hack in a supportive environment.

Collaborating in teams, participants will experience what it is like to transform an idea into a scalable prototype through 10 hours of hacking. The hackathon will provide attendees with opportunities to network, design, and build innovative websites and applications that will make a direct impact on the female development community in Chicago.

Cost: FREE!

Meals and snacks will be provided throughout the duration of the hackathon.
