Late in 2018, AT&T Ohio was proud to play a small role in the success of Girls4STEAM, a hackathon event hosted by the Kent State Student Chapter for American Computing Machinery-Women.

AT&T provided funding for the hackathon, which the chapter held in partnership with the Research Center for Educational Technology of Kent State’s College of Education, Health & Human Services.
The event achieved its goal of inspiring young women in grades 7 through high school to be creators of technological innovations - not just consumers of technology - who use technology as a creative tool to build solutions for problems or challenges people face in their daily lives. The hackathon engaged young women in rich STEAM opportunities through collaborative hands-on experiences to design and create a technology product such as a game, website, app, or other hardware hack.
