UC Riverside's Women-centric Hackathon


Image of Coffee Cup Rose Hack is the first women-centric hackathon at the University of California, Riverside. Founded by the female leaders of the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM-W) and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), Rose Hack will be a community where women in STEM can feel supported in sharing and expressing their ideas.

Our mission at Rose Hack is to encourage individuals from underrepresented groups in STEM to gain experience, build confidence, and create a strong network together.

Rose Hack is a 24-hour hackathon hosted at Winston Chung Hall at the University of California Riverside. This is the first women-centric hackathon in the region!

Rose Hack welcomes all undergraduate and high school students.

The Numbers









A hackathon is a technology-focused event where individuals and teams work on new projects in a short period of time. You can build anything you want. An app, a robot, a website. The only limit is your imagination!

Rose Hack is a 24-hour hackathon open to high school and undergraduates with priority towards women and other underrepresented groups in tech.

Rose Hack is completely free! You'll get a weekend's worth of swag, snacks, meals, drinks and a place to sleep.

Rose Hack is hosted in sunny California at the University of California, Riverside.

Participants will be provided with parking permits to park at UC Riverside for free. We are working with our sponsors to add travel reimbursment as a benefit for participants.

If you are a high school or undergraduate student in any major, we'd love to see you here!

Teams can have up to 4 people.

All projects for Rose Hack must be made during the weekend. Planning and gathering resources before the hackathon is allowed. We will be enforcing this to ensure a fair hackathon.

There will be workshops throughout the event! Want to learn iOS, web development, data science, or anything else? Send us a message and we'll try our best to host a workshop for that topic.

Make sure to bring your laptop, chargers, toiletries, student ID, and anything else you need for 24 hours of hacking. No need to bring snacks or food, we'll have tons of that for you!
