Technica - University of Maryland’s all-women hackathon

My name is Jennifer Le and I am a member of the organizing team for Technica, the University of Maryland’s all-women hackathon. I would like to cordially invite all female and non-binary students within the Honors College to participate in our event this year!

A hackathon is a creative and collaborative event where students gather to grow their coding skills, explore different aspects of the technological world, and collaboratively push the limits of technology as we know it today. However, most hackathons today are primarily male populated, which can often discourage women from attending. Technica’s goal is to introduce and support young women in technology in order to tackle this problem of diversity in tech. Thus, we are convening sponsors, mentors, volunteers, and (this is where you come in!) enthusiastic female coders for a hacktastic weekend to learn more about the field and code up some amazing projects.

A bit more info: Technica is open to women and non-binary folks of all levels of technical background and all majors, so whether a student is an expert hacker or has never written a line of code, they will spend an incredible weekend at our event. Additionally, we provide free lodging, food, swag and mentorship for the whole duration. Last year, Technica drew over 400 attendees from a variety of backgrounds, including 85 high school students, and this year, we hope to double both numbers. In addition, this year, the week leading up to the hackathon will also be filled with tech workshops and info sessions held at the University of Maryland to prepare attendees with skills to build something new or solve difficult problems - more info on this to come!

Registration for Technica is currently open and the application can be found on our website. Additionally, students can stay in the loop (pun intended!) by liking Technica on Facebook or following us on Twitter. If you have any questions, please reach out to the Technica team via email at, or through our Facebook and Twitter.

Thank you for your time and we hope to see you on November 5th!

Best regards,
Jennifer Le

The Stamp Gallery presents Paradise Now, August 29 through October 15


Opening Round: Thursday, September 1, 6–8:30 pm

*The 60-minute game begins promptly at 7 pm*

Free and Open to the Public

This fall, the University of Maryland’s Stamp Gallery
presents Paradise Now, a project by Baltimore-based artist Kimi Hanauer featuring work by Sydney Spann, Michael Stephens, and Nikki Lee. Paradise Now is a game of unequal circumstances and varying objectives. From August 29 through October 15, Paradise Now invites visitors to develop their potential as players by participating in gaming rounds that, over time, will collectively alter and reinvent the game’s score thus changing the rules of the space itself. Visitors are invited to experience the game’s opening round on Thursday, September 1, 7–8 pm, doors at 6 pm, featuring live performances by Sunatirene, Michael Stephens, and Nikki Lee.

Paradise Now is curated by Stamp Gallery docents Christopher Bugtong (UMCP ’17), Grace DeWitt (UMCP ’17), and Shay Tyndall (UMCP ’17), all current undergraduate students at the University of Maryland—College Park. An incubator for emerging artists and curators, the Stamp Gallery regularly presents exhibitions curated by undergraduates. Recent student-
curated projects include In Response: Conversations Between Emerging Artists and Contemporary Work From The CAPP Collection (June 15–July 31, 2015) organized by Genesis Henriquez (UMCP ’16), Korey Richardson (UMCP ’16), and Shay Tyndall (UMCP ’17), and Magnified: A Student Curated Show (June 5–July 24, 2014) featuring work by Al Zaruba, Chip Irvine, and Michael Sylvan Robinson and curated by Carmen Dodl (UMCP’16), Geena Gao (UMCP ’16), and Martine Gaetan (UMCP ’15).


Kimi Hanauer is a Baltimore-based artist and organizer from Pittsburgh, PA via Tel Aviv. Kimi received her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2015. She is the co-founder and lead organizer of Press Press, an interdisciplinary publishing initiative based in Baltimore, and is a resident artist at Baltimore City Community College Refugee Youth Project. Kimi has participated in and organized a range of projects both hyper-locally and internationally, from founding and organizing Alloverstreet, to facilitating youth take-over's of local galleries, to throwing games, talks, conferences and other forms of public actions.

Nikki Lee. Space no longer fits its three fundamental inhabitants of
expression separately. They learned to morph into a hybrid creature. It now searches for a home and often creates one. Sweet hours die and give birth to new creations. The world is still left to its never ending loops- light to dark, dark to light. Both holding the power to blind. In this hunt is where I reside.

Sydney Spann is a Baltimore-based musician and performance artist whose solo project exists under the moniker Sunatirene (sún-ah-chur-ráin). Drawing from musique concrete, folk music, and pop tendencies, she uses field recordings, archival samples, generative processes, and her voice as soundscaping and storytelling tools. She translates visual symbols into aural forms and focuses on the healing and architectural potential of sound in an attempt to create new, genre-less music. Her first release is available via Ehse Records.

Michael Wasteneys Stephens grows best in direct sunlight and thorough waterings.


Christopher Bugtong is a senior Computer Science and Film Studies double major at the University of Maryland. In addition to being a student curator, docent, and Head of Social Media at the Stamp Gallery, Bugtong is founder and radio personality for Art Hour as a part of WMUC and is a Design, Cultures, and Creativity Honors College alumni.

Grace DeWitt will graduate with a double degree in Animal Science and Studio Art in spring 2017. DeWitt is Student Manager of the Stamp Gallery and a member of the 2016–17 student-led Contemporary Art Purchasing Program committee in addition to being a curator of Paradise Now. She is an Honors Humanities alumni and has an interest in painting and film photography.

Shay Tyndall is a senior at the University of Maryland who will graduate with a double major in English and Mandarin Chinese and a certificate in East Asians Studies. In addition to her work as a docent and student curator at the Stamp Gallery, Tyndall is the Student Manager at the Stamp’s Art and Learning Center, a member of Sigma Alpha Pi, a National Leadership Honor Society, and an alumni of the College Park Scholars Arts program.


Located on the first floor of the Adele H. Stamp Student Union—Center for Campus Life at the University of Maryland, College Park, The Stamp Gallery is dedicated to exhibiting contemporary art, especially the work of emerging and mid-career artists. Stamp Gallery supports contemporary art that is challenging, academically engaging, and attuned to broad community and social issues. Through meaningful exhibitions and programming, the Stamp Gallery offers outside-of-the-classroom experiential learning opportunities. It functions as a laboratory where emerging artists and curators experiment and work through their ideas. The Gallery’s programming aims to emphasize the importance of process to contemporary artistic practice and to provide a forum for dialogue.

Learn more about the Maryland Student Researchers program, and review nearly 150 available opportunities by visiting our website at:

The Maryland Student Researchers (MSR) program serves as a University-wide online bulletin board where UMD researchers post research opportunities for undergraduate students. It is a great way for undergraduates to learn about the rewards and challenges of academic research. Nearly 150 projects are listed with more being added so check back regularly over the next several weeks.

The MSR bulletin board is designed to help undergraduates find research opportunities that are a good fit for their interests and qualifications, and to help faculty members find students to assist with their research project(s).  The research opportunities posted on the MSR website typically call for students to spend around six hours a week working under the direction of a faculty mentor on that faculty member’s own research.  Participating students learn skills and gain valuable experience that will enhance their graduate school and job qualifications. Most positions are for volunteers, some are paid.

The Maryland Center for Undergraduate Research will hold numerous information sessions to assist students who want to use the MSR bulletin board to identify suitable research opportunities, and also to provide advice about additional ways to pursue research opportunities – space for each session is limited so please RSVP to with the date/time of the session you plan to attend:
