Girl Geeks 1: The Hackathon

Get your geek on with this girl gang as they design, make, game, hack, code and more! Developed in partnership with Girl Geek Academy.

Hamsa’s teacher has announced that their class will be doing their very own hackathon.

A hack-a-what? thinks Hamsa. She doesn’t know anything about tech or coding!

Can Hamsa and her team come up with the goods or will things fall apart as she plays it too cool for school?
