Event description

Description

"Hack the Gap" is a hackathon focused on narrowing the learning gap between students of all ages in Computer Science and related fields. While CS education has slowly spread across many boundaries, from borders to age ranges to skill levels, it has not spread fast enough we say! As technological advancement accelerates, computer science becomes more important with each passing year. Yet many students from kindergarten all the way through high school don’t yet have the option to learn CS after-school or weekends. We believe that all #KidsCanCode regardless of their experience, age, confidence level, and many other oft-perceived boundaries.

FAQs

Who needs a ticket?

Each child will need a participant ticket to participate, including siblings or friends, so we can ensure there are enough laptops and snacks for everybody. Parents need not reserve a ticket, any number of parents and guardians can accompany their kids.

What will we do?

We have activities set up for 2 different age groups:

CODING NINJAS for ages 6 to 10
CODING SAMURAI for ages 11 to 16

Kids are free to join either group regardless of age, say if your brainy-9-year-old already codes on her own, SAMURAI might be right for her. Please note which group you'd like to join when signing up.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Kids ages 6 to 16, and their parents if they want to join the fun!

What are my parking options for the event?

We're located on the top floor of an office building with a built-in parking garage, plenty of Visitor parking spots.
