My name is Emily Newman and I am the director of Pearl Hacks at UNC. Pearl Hacks is an all girls hackathon aimed to create an encouraging environment where girls can explore their interests in coding and technology. Hackathon might sound scary…. but basically girls just create projects like websites, apps and even hardware! We would love to have some of the women in your club attend. We are extremely beginner friendly and offer workshops throughout the day to teach you anything you want to know!The event is the weekend of February 11-12 and is an overnight event. We offer free meals and snack throughout the day and lots of free swag! We have so many tech companies come to offer help and look for great candidates for internships and full time positions.
I would really appreciate it if you could get the word out to the women in your organization! If they want more information or want to sign up they can go to pearlhacks.com.
