Stem and sports are becoming the two most popular activities in the world. This week's events will dive into the harmonies between sports and stem that can be leveraged to thrive in tech fields.

STEM is a modern way of life that has been proven to be more beneficial and practical than our old education systems. Both stem and sports have a lot of competition and take up a lot of time. As more people are becoming interested in sports and the STEM fields, there are a growing number of opportunities to find careers that combine both. These industries have always been linked, but they’ve never been more linked than right now.

Hip Hop Hackathon launches a season of events between Black History Month and Juneteenth 2022 that bring together innovators and creatives to develop technology solutions to real-world problems. The events are aimed at providing the underrepresented, especially Blacks and Latinos, and all undervalued groups with the opportunity to develop their skills in the STEM fields and gain exposure to employment opportunities in STEM.

Hip Hop Hackathon is a community of creators, makers, and changemakers who have the power to craft the future of technology and culture by leveraging their unique talents to build solutions that address real-world problems. We know that our movement is not limited to the three pillars of rap, dance, and technology. We are artists and creators from all walks of life who have the potential to combine their expertise across a variety of disciplines to empower the culture.

The free events will celebrate the rich contributions of people of color, Blacks, and specifically, Black Women in STEM, to the computer industry, and encourage the next generation to explore STEM careers.
