StarHacks is an all-female identifying and nonbinary high school hackathon. It is an overnight virtual coding event where attendees of all different coding backgrounds work to build a project addressing a real-world issue (this year's theme is mental health).
Our mission is to provide a safe and empowering space for gender minorities in technology to explore coding, regardless of experience. We strive to encourage them to pursue technology and computing, a largely male-dominated field, making us one step closer to closing the gender gap.
