Frequently Asked Questions
What is Superposition?

Superposition is a 150-person 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 your 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.

What should I bring?

A valid ID (school ID is fine), a laptop, charger(s), sleeping bag/pillow (if you want), toiletries, signed and completed waivers, and layers--the venue may be chilly!

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.

Do I need a team?

We encourage people to work in teams of up to four. Additionally, there will be time in the beginning dedicated for you to find a team! You are not required to sumbit a hack, but there will be workshops and mentors on-hand to help you.

How can I help?

We are looking for mentors, workshop leaders, and sponsors! If you are interested in learning more about how you can help support Superposition, please email us at
