At CS4All hackathons, students from all over New York City are challenged to work together to reimagine their communities and how technology gets used.
Hackathons are ideal for focusing on new or familiar programming languages. Students are given the opportunity to work in fresh and exciting environments, learn how to rapidly prototype ideas, and create working demos. They then develop and present their ideas to judges and other students. Look at these recaps and pictures from our past hackathons.
Up to 100 middle and high schools from across NYC are invited to participate in this bracketed game design competition; winning teams at the school- and borough-level will advance to a final, citywide competition facilitated by the not-for-profit, Games for Change.
Any school can host their own hackathon with the CS4All Hack Packs! Each Hack Pack contains a teacher guide, student worksheets, day-of slideshow, and scoring rubric. All files are editable.
