Event Details

Our first Leeds Youth Hack will be held at.... Leeds Central Library!


Leeds Youth Hack #1

A 2 day coding competition where you get to try coding in a friendly environment with professional mentors.

Come and code with your friends - or make new friends whilst taking part in a coding taster session.

Digital companies will set challenges and offer prizes. This doesn't just mean the best code - its about working well as a team, being willing to learn and daring to fail...

If you've not done a hack before, no matter - there'll be friendly mentors on hand to help you out.


Who is it for?

This event is for 13-18* year olds (*not yet at uni). We will need an emergency contact name and number to allow you to stay unaccompanied.


What do I need?

You just need to bring a laptop and some enthusiasm and be ready to work with other people. (We do have a limited number of laptops we can loan out, let us know when reserving your ticket)

A packed lunch will be provided.


What is a hack?

A 2 day fun team coding competition to test and challenge your digital skills and creativity. 

Companies set challenges and offer prizes for the best hack. This doesn't just mean the best code - its about working well as a team, being willing to learn and daring to fail...

Do I need to know how to code?

This is a fun event where the aim is to work together, learn and produce something cool. If you've never coded or attended an event like this before, don't worry - we will start you off on an introductory project and see if it's something you enjoy.
