PixelHacks was founded as the Bay Area's first student-run, all-female high school hackathon. It was a 24-hour, overnight hackathon as attendees work to build a software project that addresses a real-world problem. Our mission is to encourage women to pursue computing and technology and promote diversity in this ever-growing field. We've grown from 70 attendees at PixelHacks I in 2017 to over 170 attendees in PixelHacks III in 2019.
