Black Girls CODE Bay Area Chapter Presents: Code A Brighter Future Hackathon

Black Girls CODE is teaming with Colgate to deliver a free girls-only hackathon (6th – 12th grade) as they push young women to “Code a Brighter Future”.


When you picture a promising future, what do you see? What changes do you envision in your community? How is your day-to-day life improved? What challenges do you anticipate we’ll experience with our environment or wildlife? What would you build to make the future you foresee a reality? Use your imagination to create a mobile app that paves the way for a brighter future.

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 weekend building apps and tools.

This hackathon will provide each Tech Diva with the opportunity to take part in a three-day youth focused hackathon that encourages creativity and teamwork. Ladies will learn how to design and build apps, concluding the weekend with team presentations and solution demos live on stage!
