Join us for the 2020 TeenTechSF Civic Hackathon !
Saturday Oct 10, 9:30 am – 5:00pm | Sunday Oct 11, 9:30am – 3:00pm
2 days, 14 hours, 150 teens generating thousands of ideas for tech solutions to community problems! This year, we’re partnering with others to focus on creating tech solutions and amazing innovations to solve world problems and stop the spread of COVID!
Like all our events, the TeenTechSF Civic Hackathon is free, beginner-friendly, and open to all Bay Area teens. New hackers are highly encouraged to participate. We’ll have a special award category for first-time hackers and GIVEAWAYS THROUGHOUT the two-day long event! Workshops will be available on pitch development, app and website design, 3D printing, coding with Python, machine learning, and more.
New this year, we’re inviting TeenTechSF Alumni to speak about the importance of young innovators in tech and how TeenTechSF prepared them for their own journeys. Current TeenTechSF student leaders will be leading an INTERACTIVE PANEL, talking about the work that we do and how you can get involved. Students and parents are welcome!
Mentors from TeenTechSF and others will help teens turn their big ideas into reality! The best tech projects from the Bay Area will win bragging rights, some great swag, and the chance to participate in the TeenTech Civic Hackathon World Pitch in December with teams from as far away as Greece or China!
Run for and by teens, like all of our events: Event is free, but if you are able, please make a $5 or more donation to cover food and other event costs.
