About this event

Superposition VI is the Bay Area’s oldest and largest gender-focused hackathon for high school and college students. We aim to create a welcoming, supportive environment for hackers of underrepresented genders to discover and develop their passion for technology.

This year, we're going virtual! Join us for technical and career-building workshops, networking opportunities, and amazing prizes like Polaroid cameras, gaming equipment, portable batteries, and more.

No coding experience is required. We will hold introductory website and mobile app development workshops the weekend before the hackathon to help develop your coding skills.




We welcome all high school and college undergraduate students who identify as female or non-binary to compete in our hackathon! Folks of all gender identities are encouraged to support our attendees by mentoring, judging, or serving as an ambassador.

Superposition is an international non-profit bridging the gender gap in STEM. We were founded in 2016 as the Bay Area’s largest all-women and non-binary hackathon, partnering with VSCO and Uber. Since then, we’ve expanded beyond a 24-hour hackathon to 117 chapters worldwide.



1. All projects must have been built during Superposition VI. No plagiarism or reusing of previous projects will be tolerated.

2. Cross-submissions to other hackathons aren’t allowed.

3. Teams must be entirely female-identifying or non-binary.

4. Devpost submission must have a recorded pitch/demo up to 3 mins long, and a link to your code (GitHub repo, Replit link, etc. is fine). Link your project if possible (ex. if you built a website, link it).
