Possible roles: mentors (and/or workshop leaders), panelists, and judges.
Mentors: We need mentors to help the high school women with programming, idea development, and overall guidance throughout the process of them creating projects. Many of the 170 attendees have had zero or minimal exposure to computer programming before. Mentors can come in for any number of hours on Saturday (1/26) and/or Sunday morning (1/27). Mentors who stay overnight may possibly be compensated monetarily, though specific details about timing and scheduling are TBD.
Panelists: We are holding a women in tech panel of ~5 panelists for the high school women to understand what it is like for a woman to pursue technology and/or to be in the industry. This will be on Saturday 5-6pm.
Judges: Judges are in charge of evaluating all the projects at the conclusion of the hackathon. This will be from 10am-11:30am on Sunday morning.
Workshops: We're definitely looking to explore iPhone/Android development, web development, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, UI/UX design, specific APIs, game design, etc. Last year we had workshops on building a personal website, Android App Development, intro to UX design, non-traditional paths to tech, intro to machine learning, and more. This will be on January 26, somewhere between 10am - 6pm.
