What is the Teens Learning Code Hackathon Program?
Equipping the leaders of tomorrow with the skills and experience to succeed in the future of innovation. Not to mention, have a ton of fun along the way. Pack your laptop and an open mind – and join us for this fun, action-packed Hackathon where we’ll tackle important social issues, chosen by YOU!
With the hands-on, social and collaborative learning approach we’re known and loved for, Hackathons provide a fun, collaborative and intensive learning experience that introduces teen girls ages 13-17 years old to the world of solving real-world problems with technology. This special event aims to reinforce the strength in diverse teams and that anyone can contribute to solving problems -whether you are just starting out with coding or have many programming languages under your belt.
The experience brings together technical workshops (HTML & CSS, UX/UI), work sessions, unplugged activities and industry insights where you’re able to learn as a group in a collaborative, social, friendly and supportive environment.
Teens will be inspired by the amazing instructors and mentors and will learn the technological and creative skills necessary for this ever-changing digital generation.
By the end of the Hackathon, you’ll have learned important skills to help you think critically, prepare you for the future in technology and contribute to the Web in a positive way. Extending beyond technology, participants will develop critical thinking skills and empathy by learning how to identify, frame and unpack problems to tackle.
