An event that gathers programmers with different abilities to "hack" and create a project in a limited amount of time.
PixelHacks was founded as the Bay Area's first student-run, all-female high school hackathon. It was a 24-hour, overnight hackathon as attendees work to build a software project that addresses a real-world problem. Our mission is to encourage women to pursue computing and technology and promote diversity in this ever-growing field. PixelHacks has welcomed hundreds of attendees since 2017!
PixelHacks VI location is TBD and set to happen in early 2022!
You don't need to have a team formed beforehand - you can form teams during the hackathon. Each team can have 2 to 4 individuals.
Absolutely not! There will also be workshops where you can improve your skills, mentors throughout the hackathon to help you personally, and you can also learn from other students!
This event, including all food, swag, and prizes, is completely free!
We welcome any high school student who identifies as female or non-binary!
Please stand by for a form to register to be a mentor, panelist, or judge, we'd love to have you!
