GSBHacks is a student-run hackathon for girls. We strive to give young women the experiences, connections, and resources to pursue the STEM career of their dreams. With our team of passionate high school students, we are fully committed to bridging the gender gap in STEM one student at a time.

This event is absolutely free with workshops and prizes included. We are inviting young women in middle school, high school, and college to join us for 24 hours of inspiration and creation while having the chance to develop their coding skills and network with girls with similar interests.
