EnviroHacks is a hackathon designed for high school students meant to give students real world experience in developing their own programs. The hackathon is meant to present a school-sanctioned situation in which students can challenge themselves. EnviroHacks will take place on March 16th, 2019 from 8:00AM- 6:30PM
A hackathon is typically an event where programmers and engineers compete in teams in order to develop original software in just 24 hours. Our hackathon will be where high school programmers and engineers develop their projects in just eight hours. Our students will be able to exercise their creativity, problem-solving, teamwork, and programming skills in a competitive and fun environment.
This hackathon is meant to promote creativity and entrepreneurship, as well as help students develop their skills in programming and marketing. Through not only developing their projects, but also through developing a presentation, the students will get an opportunity to learn how the artistic and technical worlds meet.
Each school is allowed to sponsor up to three teams of four members per team. This team can be made up of programmers, engineers, artists, or anyone deemed necessary to fully develop their projects and presentations. While we allow for a diverse array of participants, each team must have at least one programmer and one artist to develop their project and presentation. All team members must be enrolled in the high school sponsoring the team.
