High School Students Invited to Virtual Coding Event
Hackathon by the Sea is May 21-22
Ventura County high school students are invited to attend the Hackathon by the Sea, a two-day computer coding event presented by the Ventura County Office of Education with support from the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Engineering & Expeditionary Warfare Center. Hacker Fund, which is a national nonprofit network of STEM mentors, is joining us again this year to deliver the event.
Participants will have the chance to “hack together” all types of creative projects which they will present as they compete for awards. This is an opportunity for students to team up with some of the brightest minds in Ventura County through a variety of workshops. This free event is open to students in grades 9-12 and will be held on Friday, May 21, and Saturday, May 22. All experience levels are welcome.
Registration is available at https://www.vcoe.org/hackathon. Please address any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
