The battle to build a better city.
BOYS vs GIRLS takes on a whole new meaning as we promote gender diversity in technology and compete to develop practical, open source solutions that solve civic problems.
DO YOU HAVE MAD SKILLS, GREAT IDEAS AND A DESIRE TO COMPETE?
We believe that the best ideas and solutions come from collaboration amongst individuals with a broad range of backgrounds and skills. We are looking for designers, artists, educators, entrepreneurs, engineers, technologists and developers - anyone who is up for the challenge, has a passion for changing their community and is willing to contribute. As a first of it’s kind event, participants will decide whether they would like to work within the same sex teams or combined teams and will have a chance to defend or modify their choice during the competition.
We are purposely inviting students to the event with the goal of establishing connections with mentors. Students who sign up and participate will be assigned a mentor during the event to enhance their hackathon experience. The number of students participating will be limited to ensure the mentor/student relationship is positive for all involved.
