Organised by students, this will be our first virtual hackathon. We welcome students around the world currently in secondary school, ranging from 13-18 years of age, with or without prior CS experience or knowledge. We hope to provide experiences for students to engage in collaborative computer programming competitions.
Virtual Setting: Due to current limitations, this year’s hackathon will take place online. The event will run from the 14th to the 22nd of November, taking place over the course of two weekends.
Theme: This year’s Hackathon theme revolves around the environment. As the world begins to place a larger focus on environmentalism and sustainability, the solutions should reflect the growing importance of these universal issues. By encouraging more and more people to help mitigate the myriad of issues affecting our ecosystem, we can start the conversation on addressing everything from carbon emissions to water pollution.
