This is a hackathon: a 24-hour event where students of all backgrounds, interests, and talents will come together and create whatever their mind can think of. We will provide everything you will need, from mentors and workshops to free food and a place to sleep.
Westborough has been at the forefront of education for decades; unfortunately, it is lacking in its adoption of computer science. As students of Westborough High School, we think that there is an under-utilization of resources on how computer science is taught; we want to fix that.
Why not?! It's a weekend full of free-food, hanging out with friends, and having fun. Best-case scenario, you find out that you have a passion for computer science. Worst-case scenario, you just spend a weekend hanging out with friends and have a ton of free food and snacks.
All High School students are welcome! We are expecting people from throughout the metro-west area, but access isn't limited by geography; if you can get yourself to the event, you are welcome!
Make sure that you bring your student ID so that we can check you in. You probably want to bring your computer, a charger for both your computer and your phone, and anything else you might need to hack. If you plan to sleep, think about bringing a sleeping bag, and possibly some toiletries. If you have any questions about this, feel free to email us.
100% FREE!! You don't have to pay a dime to get in. We will provide everything, from food to swag, at no cost.
Awesome! We have workshops to help get you started, and mentors will be around to answer any questions that you may have. If you're interested in learning to code, hackathons are a great first step.
Unfortunately, we are not able to provide travel reimbursements for this event.
