The Girl Hackathon initially envisioned by a group of women in technology.  Understanding the opportunities that are created when technology is embraced, a founding group of women and men have created an event that will empower girls to think of technology as an experience that is creative, fun and exciting. 

Our first program was held at Boston Public Schools Bolling Building on May 1, 2016. Forty-six girls representing both urban and suburban communities and at least 16 independent private and public schools spent the afternoon coding together. The program was covered by both the Boston Globe and Fox News. You’ll find links to the coverage on our Facebook page.
