We’ll kick off with heavy hors d’oeuvres Friday evening and everyone will choose their projects and meet their team members.  Saturday and Sunday, it’s all up to the teams to create something amazing!  At 4pm Sunday, we’ll hear from each team about their solution, and we’ll adjourn at 5:30.  Also, we’d love to hear ideas on how to help teams continue working on their projects for the nonprofits!

A light breakfast, lunch and snacks are provided Saturday and Sunday.  Childcare will be provided on-site.  And we would *love* to have some supportive techie guys help out with the childcare in order to break yet another stereotype!  We’re hoping to have some fun, hands-on activities for the kids too, depending on ages (and age ranges).

Please let us know if you have a nonprofit you think would like to be involved and get some free problem-solving, or if you’d like to be a volunteer and help to organize this event.

All people who identify as women are welcome, although we have set a lower limit on age to 15.  However, we are open to persuasion…if you are a young woman under 15, feel free to contact us.
