Hackathon „Jugend hackt – Mädchen vernetzen“

In February 2020, the “Jugend hackt” hackathon initiative in association with Forschungszentrum Jülich launched a special series of events aimed specifically at girls for the first time: During the hackathon “Jugend hackt – Mädchen vernetzen”, 20 girls aged between 12 and 18 turned the Jülich campus upside down while they busied themselves with puzzles, programming, and soldering. In addition, the girls got to know the Jülich Supercomputing Centre.

Jugend hackt is a programme to promote young programmers in German-speaking countries: In the spirit of the event’s motto, “improving the world with code”, the participants will work together to tinker with prototypes, digital tools, and concepts for their vision of a better society, with help from volunteer mentors.
