II  Hackathon by the Sea – Girls’ Edition.

We are recruiting female mentors for our Hackathon by the Sea- Girls Edition. This two-day program was designed to empower upper middle school and high school Ventura County girls to experience the innovation and excitement that occurs when the power of coding is unleashed.

Mentorship is an integral part of any hackathon and literally changes lives. This is where you come in. Mentors work with students to help them create prototypes and turn their vision into reality. A good mentor can vastly improve a hacker's experience and learning, and inspire them to pursue their dreams.
