Description

Hello Vancouver! Join us for the Girls in Tech x UBC Hack for Humanity. This hackathon will take place at The University of British Columbia from February 10-11th. Unique to Hack for Humanity, final hack presentations will take place at RED Academy prior to an after party. Expect prizes, food, and fun at the afterparty - complete with photographs to capture your experience. This is an event you do NOT want to miss!

→ WHAT THE HACKATHON IS

This is not your typical two-day hackathon. Hack for Humanity is a female-focused hackathon with a welcoming environment for women to participate in a hackathon. Everybody is welcome, we encourage diverse groups to come together and create amazing projects. Mentorship will be available during the hackathon from industry professionals. Prizes will be rewarded in the best categories - to be announced.

Regardless of gender, age, or university you are welcomed to come!

Hack for Humanity is a two-day event, without the need to stay overnight to complete your project. Participants can go home for a good night's rest before final presentations at RED Academy.

Check in and attend our welcome ceremony at UBC on Day 1 to know when food is served and the rules to win awesome prizes! Come to RED Academy on Day 2 for judging, prizes, and an amazing after party.

→ WHO IS INVITED

We encourage everyone (18+) to join! The best innovations are made by diverse groups. All we ask is to have at least one female in your group. Feel free to come with a group or alone - Girls in Tech will help you find a group if needed! Don't be afraid to come out, make friends, and innovate.

Make sure to show your school spirit - wear some of your school swag. We want to show off the top tech talent across universities from the Lower Mainland!
