Description


"I never knew what a hackathon was until I experienced it at Ladies Learning Code teen:club's first hackathon and there was so many things that I loved about it! I learnt new thinking methods to help me develop my ideas. I learnt various problems that people face which I never knew. The mentors were very helpful and supportive to everyone. I even made awesome new friends! Overall, this experience made me learn new things and build new relationships in such a short period. I can't wait for the next one!"
-- Chloe Maceda, Teen Club Member

Pack your laptop and sleeping bag, your problem solving; collaboration; and creative skills - and join us from December 16th to 18th for a fun and interactive learning experience!

Ladies Learning Code Teen:club is hosting it's 2nd Annual Hackathon for highschool girls ages 13 to 17 years old. We’re here to equip the leaders of tomorrow with the skills to succeed in the future of innovation. Not to mention, have a ton of fun while getting it all done!
