Superposition’s mission is to provide a safe, welcoming, and supportive space for high school girls to delve into the realm of technology.

WHAT IS SUPERPOSITION?
Superposition is a hackathon aimed at high school girls in the Bay Area of all experience levels and backgrounds. This event is free and we'll provide Wi-Fi, food, swag, and workspace!

WHAT IS OUR GOAL?  

We are passionate about offering attendees a safe, welcoming, and supportive environment to experiment with technology at any experience level. Additionally, we want to generate a larger interest and help more girls learn and thrive in the technology related fields.

WHO CAN COME?
Anyone in high school is welcome, though this is targeted at girls! You must abide by our code of conduct to make this event welcome for all. Also, we will not be offering travel reimbursements this year.
