Join us for a weekend dedicated to filling the gender gap, exploring technology, and building the next big thing! Our mission is to support and nurture women* in tech by hosting Rutgers' premiere hackathon addressing issues of the gender gap in technology. Expect a weekend full of workshops, mentorship, tech talks, social activities, and more! No experience is necessary, you just need passion.

In its ninth iteration, over 500 students will come together for 24 hours to create with code and turn their ideas into reality. HackHERS is organized by Rutgers Women in Computer Science.
