Simmons SharkHack will be returning for its second year this fall, September 30-October 1.

Full event details at


Because Simmons College is a women-centered college, our hackathon focuses on providing college women and recent graduates with the opportunity to join forces and develop new mobile apps, games, hardware hacks, and more.


The goal of this hackathon is to create a safe space for individuals who identify as female or nonbinary, or were assigned female at birth, since these people are frequently underrepresented in computer science. With that in mind, feel free to register regardless of your gender.


Submit the name of your hack, your team name, and a brief summary of why your hack is awesome! Feel free to upload a demo video, a pdf summary, or any additional files that help explain your app, although they are not necessary.
