Code for fun is proud to sponsor WilHacks, a hackathon for high school students happening on October 13-14 2017.
WilHacks is an exciting and interactive experience where high school students will be given the opportunity to demonstrate or develop their programming skills. WilHacks is a free 24 hour event at Adrian C. Wilcox High School with great food, accommodations and access to technology. You and/or your team (up to to individuals per team) will have 24 hours to create an innovative application which will be reviewed by our judges for implementation and creativity. This hackathon is an excellent opportunity for students to showcase their programming skills in a competitive atmosphere as well as have an enjoyable hacking experience. How will you make a difference?
If you do not have any programming experience, this is your chance! At WilHacks you will get the chance to attend workshops, get help from out talented mentors and obtain exposure on what computer science entails. Seize the day and explore a world where anything and everything is possible :)
