General Information:A hackathon is a gathering where programmers collaboratively analyze, design and code in an agile manner over a short period of time. The Patriots hackathon will feature teams of four beginner-level middle and high school students who will take part in a prerequisite intensive Python training to compete in a challenging hackathon design of foster team work and collaboration while allowing them to showcase acquired development skills.
Training Workshops: All students are expected to take part in an intensive hands-on training program for several months, led by software engineering mentors leading up to the hackathon. Mentors will teach students basic and intermediate programming constructs and concepts that will allow them to develop applications through a series of hands-on and interactive training sessions. By obtaining this foundational knowledge, students will be able to build upon these concepts and learn programming languages. Python is just the start.
