The event, which is designed to encourage women to pursue computer science careers, brought together over 60 middle school, high school and college students from 20 schools in Southern California to design and develop websites, mobile applications, games and digital marketing strategies that focused on two social issues, foster youth and safe care for the elderly.

The event was organized and implemented by Drs. Youwen Ouyang, Dr. Sahar Mosleh and Dr. Nahid Majd, faculty members in the Computer Science Department with Shauna Ruyle, a Marketing Consultant, and Cal State San Marcos graduate. The team was supported by industry professionals, volunteers, IT and Software mentors and esteemed judges from the IT industry and local companies.
