Description

BRING YOUR FRIENDS. LEARN TO CODE. MAKE TOMORROW BETTER.

Bring your creativity, curiosity, and passion to Ventura County’s only overnight high school hackathon. A hackathon is a coding event in which teams “hack” together to create an awesome project like a game, website, or app. In 21 hours, you and/or your team will have the opportunity to learn to use technology to solve some of today’s problems and MAKE TOMORROW BETTER. Team up with some of the brightest minds in Ventura County and—fueled by free food and the chance to win prizes—turn your creative energy into award-winning projects that entertain and inspire.
