Busting Media Stereotypes: The Hack Jam (C)

April 21, 2013 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Sierra Richardson

This event will give girls the opportunity to explore gender stereotypes in digital media, and through hands-on computer activities, and empower the girls to break down those stereotypes through hacking.


What is a Hack Jam?
While there are some negative connotations associated with hacking, there is also a positive side. A Hack Jam aims to take on an interesting challenge, providing participants the opportunity to take things apart, try things out and remix to make something new. It is a collaborative and creative process that also moves participants from consuming to creating digital media.


The Challenge
How can we take action to break down stereotypes in digital media?


Participants may attend as individuals or troops.
