Create, Learn, Solve: NewDay in London

What?

During the summer half-term, join us at our one-day hackathon with NewDay. Newday is a financial services company featuring a range of talented women in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts and maths) at the forefront of innovation.

Spend a free, fun, food-filled session with us learning from STEAM role models, solving age-appropriate challenges and meeting new people. Can’t make it in person in London? Join us online instead!

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is an event that encourages people to come together to develop a solution to a STEM problem. This could be through app creation, chatbots, products that you have 3D designed and much more. No previous experience with technology or coding is required. The idea is to have a go and have fun!

This hackathon will cover using technology to help people move forward and better utilise credit in their lives.
