About this event

Build bridges to new terrain of exploration and opportunity with StarHacks! 🌟🌎

After our first iteration with over 800 registrants and 36 hours of hacking, StarHacks is proud to host our second hackathon, StarHacks II, on Saturday and Sunday, January 22-23, 2022 with beginner-focused pre-event workshops on Saturday, January 8; Sunday, January 9; Saturday, January 15; Sunday, January 16.

StarHacks is a free, beginner-focused, all-inclusive all-female and nonbinary high school and collegiate global and virtual hackathon, here to break the mold of what a person in tech looks like one hackathon at a time.

For our second year, we are #BuildingBridges: bridging divides, venturing into uncharted territory, finding unity as we pioneer into new frontier. Through code and community, our core mission is to create an environment for the world’s brightest thinkers to empower and be empowered, building the bridge to a more inclusive future β€” and we would love for you to be a part of it.
