About Keep Austin Hacking
On September 4th, in Austin, we are hosting Central Texas's largest hackathon student led: Keep Austin Hacking, where 300 of Central Texas's brightest student hackers across 6 grade levels will compete, learn, and innovate.
Over the course of 24 hours, small teams composed of student attendees will develop their own apps, websites, and games. In addition, students can compete in a competitive programming contest, interact with mentors, listen to keynote speakers, and participate in workshops. After time is up a panel of judges will choose the best projects for prizes and demos. Although many attendees will be new to coding, they will transform from passive consumers of technology to avid creators through this collaborative learning experience.
We are committed to ensuring that students of all demographic backgrounds can attend. We encourage the participation of all genders, underrepresented minorities, and LGBTQ+ students.
Participants, please bring a laptop, charger, pillow and blanket, and a fun positive attitude!
