In this one-day marathon of creative problem solving, participants will join Occupational Therapists, Adaptive Tech Professionals, and technical experts to help solve real-world problems encountered by disabled residents of Inglis House.
No experience is necessary; you need only bring your creativity and can-do attitude. If you have experience with coding, fabrication, or accessibility design, that’s a huge bonus, and we need your help!
Come prepared for a full day of challenging fun and prototyping! NextFab is a workshop, so appropriate attire is required – long pants and closed-toe shoes. We will provide basic instruction on use safe use of the tools, and hands-on technical help from engineers, expert fabricators, and adaptive tech professionals. This event is open to the public, aged 18+.
FemmeHacks is a beginner-friendly, collegiate hackathon for women-identifying* individuals in Philly/NY/NJ, hosted by the University of Pennsylvania’s Women in Computer Science. Our goal is to inspire, teach, and empower women in the Philly tech community. We believe that together we can learn, build cool projects, and create a community of technical women* in the field. FemmeHacks offers both beginner and intermediate workshops on Friday in topics like web dev, hardware, and GitHub (a code collaboration tool). On Saturday, we have all-day hacking with mentoring engineers, side events, swag, and good food.
* we realize “women” is a complicated term. We use * to specifically and intentionally welcome trans and cis women, as well as nonbinary and gender non-conforming folks :). Equality for all, y’all.
