AT&T CuseGirlHacks Challenges Local Girls to Use Technology for Social Good and Bridge the Gender Gap in the Tech Industry
Region’s first ever all-girl youth hackathon is a partnership with Tech4Kidz, Hack Upstate, The Tech Garden and AT&T to engage more local girls in computer coding, the fastest growing profession in the world.
On Saturday, December 1 girls as young as 10 years-old will bring their laptops, imagination, and teamwork to the region’s first all-girl youth hackathon in the Central New York region – known as the AT&T CuseGirlHacks. The hackathon will take place at Syracuse Academy of Science Charter School, 1001 Park Ave. Syracuse from 10am-6pm on December 1, 2018. The free all-girls hackathon is a collaboration between Tech4Kidz, The Tech Garden, Hack Upstate and AT&T, and was born out of a desire to expand coding opportunities for Central New York girls and to encourage them to enter the field of technology, specifically coding, an industry that is alarmingly male-dominant.
