Caitlin Stanton + Def Hacks()
It's a hackathon meant only for high school students founded by high school students. We want to give everyone the opportunity to test their coding skills and develop new ones, while also getting the chance to eat, network, and get free swag.
A hackathon is an event, typically lasting several hours (or even days), in which a large number of people meet to code and show off their products. You can find a longer explanation here!
We are open to hackers of all coding levels, whether you've never heard of a function or you've made millions off of apps in the App Store. We will provide mentors and workshops so that everyone can complete an application to submit.
You should bring your own computer and charger,
some form of identification, excitement :D, and power strips
This event costs nothing--each hacker will be provided with food, swag, and FUNFUNFUN.
Any student still in high school is welcome to attend! However, if you aren't in high school or if you need help convincing your parents, you can email us about your situation at firstname.lastname@example.org. You do not have to be from the US (but we don't provide travel reimbursement).
We recommend working in a team, but you have the option to work as an individual. Teams are limited to 4 people––try to work with someone new!
Fantabulous! Tell them to contact us at email@example.com
Of course! The more help the better! Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your level of experience with coding and your level of education. We will then email you with what to do from there.
Don't hesitate to email us at email@example.com! We wil try to answer your questions as best as we can :)
