HackHERS is the annual women-centric and beginner oriented hackathon held every Spring right here at Rutgers University! Our goal is to create a space in which women can explore tech culture and be empowered to create with code. All genders are allowed to participate because closing the gender gap requires everyone's contribution. For 24 hours, students from various Universities come together to learn and to create some wonderful and useful applications. Some examples of projects that were demoed are an app that taught programming using art, combining the creative and the technical side! Another example was an app to manage your budget!
