Calling All Teens to the 2021 TeenTechSF Civic Hackathon 10/9-10/10
We’re TeenTechSF, a teen-run nonprofit committed to providing equal access to tech for all teens. On Sat, Oct 9th-Sun, Oct 10th, we hope your community will join us for our 2021 TeenTechSF Civic Hackathon, an amazing opportunity for hundreds of teens to explore the world of STEM! All of our events are free and peer-led.
All are welcome in two action-packed days of workshops, panels, and prizes, as teens collaborate to develop tech solutions to solve problems in our own communities! This year’s focus is on “Tech for COVID Recovery” - get together with other teens to create new innovations to tackle the spread of COVID misinformation, support small business owners and low-income families coming out of the pandemic, or improve accessibility to COVID and mental health resources.
We’re featuring a number of community leaders from organizations including Mission Neighborhood Health Center, the Lawrence Hall of Science, UCSF, and student-run projects. Our two panels, regarding first-hand impacts of COVID and tech projects teens have created to address pandemic-related concerns, will give you the opportunity to hear from and ask questions directly to those involved in COVID community recovery.
First-time hackers are highly encouraged to participate! Beginner friendly, we'll have experienced mentors on hand to help with brainstorming and coding plus workshops on website & app development, pitch development, and prototyping. Sign up with friends or we’ll help you find a team! https://2021-ttsf-civic-hackathon.eventbrite.com/
Like all TeenTechSF events, this event is completely FREE, but advance registration is required! Open to all students 13-18 years old -- no previous coding experience necessary.
