"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

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!
The Goal: Explore a problem you feel exists, understand it intimately and create a solution that will make a difference. This is about problem hacking, learning how to work in a diverse team to solve it and using technology to help along the way!
