About WIC Hacks

A hackathon is a collaborative programming event in which participants create an app, website, game, or other piece of software over the course of the event. Hackathon participants can be female college (including non-RIT) or high school students who are at least 16 years of age.

This event is open to women of all skill levels: those who haven’t programmed at all, women who have done some programming, and the best women programmers out there. It will be a great day to learn, invent, and create the future. Don’t have a team in mind? No worries -- RIT Women in Computing will be hosting a series of events (including one on the morning of the event) to facilitate team formation. All meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks) will be provided, and participation is free.

Not a student but still interested in participating in this event? Please consider being a mentor. Mentors can be computing faculty and industry professionals, and will be paired with a team of students. Mentors will be responsible for providing broad technical and career guidance to their team. Mentors can be male or female. A detailed schedule and list of responsibilities for each role will be available soon. Please sign up as a mentor through Eventbrite to be kept up to date about the release of these materials.



The schedule for WIC Hacks is TBD.
