LunarHacks strives to engage more women and non-binary individuals in the fields of STEM by empowering the next generation of women+ leaders. We wish to create an encouraging environment for our participants while breaking stereotypical gender barriers that exist in today's society.
In 2021, we hosted our first hackathon under the name SheCanSTEM, in which we had over 200 participants. Our hackathon this year will again feature exciting STEM-related activities, including a variety of workshops and panels. Female and non-binary students in high school or undergraduate programs will be able to network, meet new people, and compete for prizes, all while exploring their passions for computer science.
If you are interested in volunteering at our event as a speaker, panelist, mentor, or judge, please email us at email@example.com.
This track involves topics relating to the natural world and the impact of human activity on its condition. In some areas, we have gotten closer to our sustainability goals, but in others, there has been little to no progress. It’s your chance to tackle issues on sustainability, energy use, climate change, and other innovative resolutions to improve how we interact with the environment!
According to the World Health Organization, health is "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity". The Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion affirms that in order to be healthy, “an individual or group must be able to identify and to realize aspirations, to satisfy needs, and to change or cope with the environment”. Your task is to develop a solution for one or more of these subcategories!
Social justice is justice in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society. This area is concerned with economic, social, legal, and political factors which affect equality, racism and sexism, cultural discrimination, social prejudices, income gaps and much more. Use this opportunity to create a project that addresses an issue in any category that falls under the umbrella of “social justice”!
