Hackathon Event: What is a Hackathon? Kids are the best innovators. The goal of a Hackathon is not to create a perfectly polished code or a finished app or game that works. The goal is to come up with the best possible solution to a real-world problem using technology. Students will learn to embrace a debugging mindset and to persevere when faced with problems to take their ideas from concept to a prototype all in the span of an 8-hour day! Junior Hackers work together in ways they never have before. They think outside the box, communicate effectively, and share ideas with all who will listen.

The event will conclude with students presenting their work to a panel of industry experts and participate in an awards ceremony with fabulous prizes.

Check the GJHS calendar for more events & information.
