This year marks MetroHacks’ third annual hackathon for female students, providing completely free and open opportunities for girls aged 13-18 regardless of experience levels.
In light of the recent pandemic, the third annual MetroHacks Hackathon will transition to a virtual event. Solving real-world problems is the purpose of hackathons. Amidst the chaos and uncertainties cast by the COVID-19 pandemic, we aim to bring the MetroHacks community together to identify problems that have emerged in this crisis and take the initiative to solve them using innovation, technology, and compassion. Through this effort, MetroHacks is also devoted to bringing more female students into the STEM fields.
Students will acquire a deeper understanding of the COVID-19 pandemic, learn about various technologies through several webinar workshops, collaborate and create projects with team members across the country, and compete for prizes. The event is completely free and open to all high school girls regardless of expertise!
