Girls under 16 must be accompanied by an parent/guardian.

Girls Hack Ireland is being hosted by Dublin City University (DCU) for girls aged from 15 to 17 (girls under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian).  The aim is to challenge the perception of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) as ‘boy’ subjects.  This ‘hackathon’ event will focus on building websites  – the girls will be set a challenge, and will compete in groups or individually to emerge as the overall hackathon winners. They will be strongly supported by a team of mentors, and they need no prior coding experience – we’ll teach them all they need to know.  Parents/guardians will be made most welcome at the event, and are absolutely encouraged to sit in on the sessions runs for and with the girls.

Who is running it?

This event is run by the Insight Centre for Data Analytics in partnership with the Stemettes.  The Stemettes are a not-for-profit organisation whose mission is to inspire the next generation of females into STEM fields.  They have run many successful events in the UK, and will be joining us to run this event in Ireland.  Visit www.stemettes.org to find out more.
