Girls in Tech : Hack for the Environment, Week 2 update!

Hi Hacker,

How did your first week of The Girls in Tech: Hack for the Environment sprint go? We hope it was productive and that your project is progressing well. 

That said, don’t be disheartened if it’s been a slow start. It can take a few weeks to get into the flow of things. You’ve got this! 

A few reminders: 

  1. The Slack Channel is great – Join our Slack Workspace to find teammates, resources, and more – here.

  2. You can find challenges, info, and the submissions portal here.

  3. You can still find your team –

  • Looking for extra team members?

    • Introduce yourself in the Slack Channel 

    • Let others know what project you and your team plan to work on and the type of support you’re looking for (i.e., UX Designers, Software Developers, Data Scientists, Project Managers, etc.)

    • Keep an eye out for Slack updates in case people reply to your thread.

  • Seeking a team to join?

    • Continue to post in Slack and reach out to other individuals who have indicated in the #find-teammates channel that they don’t have a team. 

    • Review the Devpost participants' section to find team members. (Not all participants joined the Slack Workspace.)

  1. Submit your project before the deadline – When you’re ready to submit your project, you can do so on Devpost here.

Shoot an email to if you have any questions, and someone on our organizing team will try to get back to you as soon as possible.


All the best,


Your Girls in Tech Team


If you have any questions about the platform, please reach out to the Devpost team.
