NYC Generation Tech (GenTech) student hackathons aim to provide NYC high school students from under-resourced communities the opportunity to develop their coding skills and work alongside professionals from NYC’s tech community. Presented by the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), Center4, Dev Bootcamp, Pediacities, Squarespace, and FoodtoEat, GenTech Student Hackathon: Code4Tomorrow challenges students to identify ways to make a positive change in the communities in which they live and to think about solutions for big social problems related to health, education, employment, and seniors. With the support of volunteer mentors, students will create a digital prototype, promotional website, and demo presentation to showcase their idea. In the evening, all students will present, and prizes will be awarded to the winning teams. We hope you can join us!
