Girls4STEAM Hackathon

Kent State University Girls4STEAM Hackathon

Girls4STEAM is a hackathon event hosted by the Kent State Student Chapter for American Computing Machinery-Women in partnership with the Research Center for Educational Technology (RCET) of Kent State’s College of Education, Health & Human Services.

The event is designed to inspire young women in grades 7 through high school to be creators of technological innovations - not just consumers of technology - who use technology as a creative tool to build solutions for problems or challenges people face in their daily lives. This event will engage young women in rich STEAM opportunities through collaborative hands-on experiences to design and create a technology product such as a game, website, app, or other hardware hack.
