Join the Hackathon and Let's Get Active ~ #IAmActive

Many teenage girls across Ireland are missing out on the benefits of sport and physical activity because they don’t think they are “sporty enough”, they don’t know where or how to get involved, and they don’t think there are opportunities for them to be involved in sport other than traditional team sports.

Sport Ireland have launched the "Hackathon" ...

What is a Hackathon?

A Hackathon is a short concentrated event that brings people together to brainstorm and share a range of creative and innovative ideas around a challenge.  It’s a great way for people to come together, share ideas and create positive change in society.

Who should get involved? 

For this hackathon we are looking for individuals and groups from all ages and all backgrounds, to get involved including; girls in secondary school, TY students, teachers, parents, third level students, researchers, sport development officers, NGB and LSP staff.

Basically, if you have an idea that you think could be turned into a great programme for teenage girls or if you have a passion for promoting sport and physical activity among teenage girls and want to be part of the solution then this Hackathon event is for you!
