A Summer Weekend Hack @ CDW

On July 6th and 7th, Stemettes partnered with CDW for the first time. We hosted a Hackathon over the weekend; 52 girls (and a few boys) attended the event. Watch this video to see what we accomplished over the weekend:

 

 

On the day, the attendees had the option to be a part of 1 of 3 groups based on their coding ability; AppShed, AppInventor and Cloud9. They were tasked to create an app based on the theme of wellbeing. We had a wide range of wonderful ideas, with apps focusing on mental health, keeping active and more.

 

 

In terms of impact…

  • Attendees rated the day 9.2 out of 10
  • 100% had an increased positive perception of STEM.
  • 100% had increased their STEM awareness
  • 91% had an increased STEM network
  • 97% had an increased confidence in STEM
