This October, Lookout and Stemettes invite you to a STEMtastic virtual hackathon with a theme of Cybersecurity!
Stemettes Cyber Hack @ Lookout is an online one-day event that will tap into your creativity and equip you with the skills to imagine a better future.
We’ll be focusing on cybersecurity and how we navigate and take charge of online security for ourselves and others.
You’ll work in teams with your peers to identify a cybersecurity issue and design a product or business solution for it.
Throughout the day, you’ll be able to interact with STEM and Cybersecurity role models from Lookout and learn about cybersecurity through their knowledge and expertise. The role models will be there to inspire your approach to the ideas you will develop during the hack.
We will kick off the morning together then work in smaller groups on some STEMtastic business and product ideas. We will take a break for lunch and finish the day off with a special Stemettes showcase, during which you will present your ideas to a panel of judges from Lookout – we will be giving away some exciting prizes to the winning groups and goodie bags to all participants!
Grab your free ticket and start getting your snacks and creativity ready for a day full of STEMtastic energy!
This event is aimed at young women and non-binary people aged 12-21.
