Corpus Hacks is a 12-hour student-run hackathon for female and nonbinary middle and high school students in the Bay Area. Participants will receive free swag, prizes and food. We hope to provide participants with an inclusive environment where they can engage in workshops, learn from industry experts, find peers with similar interests in computer science, and develop their coding skills in a stress-free setting.

Our Mission

Corpus Hacks aims to help bridge the gender gap in the field of computer science and technology—despite being a rapidly growing field, in 2021, only 21% of computer scientists in the United States were women. Through Corpus Hacks, we want to increase this percentage by providing an opportunity for marginalized genders to further explore their interest in STEM.
