Women In Code: A MetroHacks Event is MetroHacks’s first 12 hr hackathon hosted at the Cambridge Innovation Center devoted to female high school students. It has a main goal of bring more girls into STEM fields. During their 12 hrs, students will learn about new technology in various workshops, collaborate and create projects with each other, and compete for prizes. Girls aged 13-18 can attend. The event is completely free, and meals are provided for all participants.
