Do you love to design?
Are you passionate about technology?
Do you want to use technology to build a better community?

If so, we want you to join us to design and develop applications that help building a better community. Specific topics will be presented by community members the day of the event. You will be working in a team to implement your own app. Teamwork is a great way to meet other students who are passionate about technology. Professional mentors will be onsite to help you. The day will close with an exhibit where all teams showcase their work. Participants should bring a laptop and mobile device (if possible), an open mindset, creativity, and a lot of enthusiasm!

The Hackathon 2019 has two tracks (Novice and Advanced):

The Novice Track is open to every student of age 13-17. If you are older but still in High School, that is okay as well. You don’t have to have any coding experience to participate. You will have the opportunity to learn developing apps with MIT App Inventor.
The Novice Track takes place February 23, 2019, 10am-5pm.

The Advanced Track is open to college students and high school students age 18 and above. You should have basic web development skills (e.g. HTML & CSS) and experience with a general purpose programming language (e.g. Java, JavaScript, C#). We strongly recommend that you have passed a web development course, like UWG's CS2100 Introduction to Web Development, and a CS1 course, like AP CS A or UWG's CS1301 Computer Science I.
The Advanced Track takes place February 22, 2019, 5:30pm-8:30pm and February 23, 2019, 8:30am-6pm.
