Hack the Gender Gap: A Women's IoT Makeathon

makeathon

There’s a serious gender gap when it comes to representation of women in the media and tech businesses. That’s why  MediaShift  and the WVU Reed College of Media will convene college-age women from around the country to envision their role and influence in the emerging “smart-world” market and opportunities for entrepreneurship.

Date:  April 1-3
Where:  WVU Media Innovation Center

From smart-objects to beacons, sensors and augmented reality, this hands-on Makeathon will introduce women as first-generation makers in media and the Internet of Things (IoT).
