Catalyst Hack is an all female and non-binary hackathon for anyone aged 18-24. It is a unique community initiative organised by Rolls-Royce engineers to encourage young minds to focus their creativity and ingenuity to use tech to help solve a social issue – the STEM gender gap.
The challenge is to design a concept for a gaming app that will inspire the next generation of girls in STEM. Over the weekend, participants will work in teams to showcase and develop their novel game ideas. But most importantly, you don’t need to be experienced or a coder to participate. We will have mentors and workshops throughout the day to support you in making your ideas a reality. Further details about the challenge will be released closer to the event.
Our mission this year is to accelerate change in closing the STEM gender gap. This is the first ever Catalyst Hack but our aim is to make this an annual event with a new challenge every year.
