Just Hack It! Black Girls CODE In-Person Summer Camp Atlanta for Ages 12-17!
About this event
Black Girls Code is coming back to in-person camp this summer! Our two week summer camp provides hands-on, project-based instruction, where campers ages 12-17 engage in tech instruction. The camp meets from 9AM-4PM with lunch, breaks, community building, field trips and of course coding! Our camps offer a space where girls can learn computer science and coding principles in the company of other girls, with mentorship from women they can see themselves becoming.
This year, our Atlanta camp is incredibly special because Black Girls CODE is teaming up with NIKE to host a hackathon during the last three days of the camp that will explore the intersection of sports and activism through the lens of technology.
What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is an event designed to bring groups of people together as they work collaboratively to solve a wide array of problems through computer programming. Black Girls CODE youth hackathons are education-focused and allow students to work in teams with experienced mentors over a three-day weekend building apps and tools. Students will learn how to design and build apps, concluding the weekend with team presentations! A winning team will be chosen to claim the first-place prize.
The Hackathon is open to girls of all experience levels in the Atlanta area. All are welcome and encouraged to register, whether a participant has previous coding exposure or is new to coding and app development!
All teams will present on Friday, July 1st and there will be 3 finalist teams that go into the finals that day. Space is limited, register now!
Technology shapes everyone’s lives all over the world and will only continue to expand, therefore, everyone should have an opportunity to shape and create it. We want to make sure that Black girls and girls of color are not only included in this tech revolution but are prepared to take on leadership roles within this field and/or start their own STEM organizations for social good.
