Create apps themed around sexual assault prevention.

This hackathon, hosted by Women in Computing Sciences, is a 24-hour period where you can work with a team of up to four people (or alone if that's your thing) to create a project, technical or otherwise! These projects are heavily encouraged to be themed around sexual assault prevention. At the end of the event we will have a demo fair for the finished product or prototype where you can pitch it to judges, and awards will be given to the best teams that meet certain categories (overall best, social good, most creative, etc.) There will be free food as well!
