HackHERS at Rutgers Empowers Women to Create Code, Breaks “Ice Ceiling”

As the name suggests, the hackathon focuses on women, with the purpose of creating a “space where women feel empowered to create with code and explore tech culture,” according to the HackHERS website. The event is a collaboration between the organization Women in Computer Science and Douglass Residential College. Students have 24 hours to team up and develop programming projects, along with making a web application and building the hardware.
