Saturday was spent getting the girls started on Hakitzu. Having arrived in the morning as beginners, by lunch time they were already well on their way to becoming Hacker Champions. We were impressed by how quickly they progressed, and it was clear to see they loved playing!
Even the parents got involved and really enjoyed learning some code with their daughters!

The weekend was rounded off with a presentation in front of the judges, where the girls who created their own projects showed off what they’d done.
Our 3D Artist Allie was on the judging panel, she said;
“I couldn’t be more impressed with what the Stemettes are doing, or with the quality of work these girls and young women were producing. I was absolutely blown away by the creativity and technical skill, and this is to speak nothing of the spirit some of these girls possessed. The Stemettes are clearly filling a great need with their work.”
The judges were also shown the last few round of the Hakitzu final! Congratulations to Helena for winning!
Thanks to the Stemettes for inviting us along, we had a great time! Another big thanks to Skimlinks for providing a great venue, food and all the drinks! Congratulations to the winners and a big thank you to the girls who got involved… you were all brilliant!
