Welcome to ProgramHers First Hackathon
Spend the day programming, hear from speakers and Tech companies, engage in fun activities, create a project in a small group with your own college mentor, and much more! Our goal is to host a day-long virtual event where middle-school students can learn how to feel empowered to program for social good. Students will be put in groups with experienced and inspiring mentors to create a practical and technological solution to solve the problem posed.
