Hackergal Programs: STEAM Education and Online Coding Classes for Girls* in Canada

Learn code. Make friends. Join the movement.

With exciting events, online resources, and a like-minded community, Hackergal inspires you to become the future of technology.

Attend a Hackathon

The Hackergal Hackathon is Canada’s largest all-girls Hackathon! Join thousands of learners from across the country for this dynamic annual event.

The Hackathon is a one-of-a-kind experience where girls and girl-identified learners (grades 6 to 9) get together, learn from each other, and code with purpose.

Our next Hackathon is scheduled for May 2023. More information is available here.

Become an Ambassador!

Hackergal’s Ambassador Program equips girls with the skills, tools, and confidence to change the Canadian tech landscape.

As an Ambassador, you’ll meet tons of like-minded friends, take part in exclusive workshops, and become a leader in your school community. This is the ultimate way to join the Hackergal movement!

“The Hackergal Ambassador Program serves as a peak into the STEM field. It introduces ambassadors to many currently working in tech by providing numerous Q&A’s – something extremely helpful to girls even considering working in STEM. It also creates a safe community where everyone is learning together 24/7. Without the Hackergal Ambassador Program, I definitely can say I would feel a lot less confident pursuing STEM next year at university, and I feel so fortunate to have been given this amazing opportunity. – Aleksandra, Hackergal Ambassador.”

“I think these programs are needed because not only do they teach girls what STEM is and break down the stigma around it, they provide girls with role models to look up to and be inspired by. I, for one, decided to go into STEM because I attended a STEM outreach program at UBC when I was younger and decided that the people who built model rockets were so cool that I wanted to be just like them when I was older. I think Hackergal provides girls with the exact same opportunities to explore something new and understand what being a woman in STEM is really like.”
