The International Women’s Hackathon is designed to empower, encourage, support, and retain more women in computer science at the university level. The 2014 event features a pair of challenges: UN Women, a United Nations organizations dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women, will drive an exercise designed to increase women’s involvement in STEM fields — science, technology, engineering, and math. Meanwhile, Teens Against Distracted Driving will host a project to encourage people to stop texting while driving.
