As part of Stanford University's Women In Data Science initiative, The Data LabTuring's Testers and Headline Sponsor, Mudano, have teamed up to create an event that celebrates women, tech, innovation and codebreaking!

The Cyber Treasure Hunt has been created by Turing's Testers, a group of motivated pupils and STEM ambassadors; inspiring, engaging and supporting girls into the technology sector. This has been running over a number of months with codes being released every few weeks. For a school to gain invitation to this event they must crack the codes. This event will be the final code cracking session with the winner being announced at the end of the day.

The event will be broken into a number of sessions and vary between workshops and talks. Talks will be led by various female thought leaders from the world of tech, including none other than Hannah Fry.

Attendee spaces are limited at this event. We expect tickets to sell out quickly, however will have a waitlist and will inform you if you have secured a place. Attendees will have a hands on role as part of this event and will be asked to help out with mentoring and guidance to each of the groups throughout the day.

This event also plays part of DataFest, kicking off proceedings on the first day of the two week festival of data science. Learn more here.
