A Hackathon for High School Coders: A Network50 Spotlight
Not everyone attends a high school whose computer science program is regarded as one of the best in the state. Not everyone has the support to apply for programs and internships to help them learn how to code. Not everyone can spend hours sitting on the floor writing algorithms in Python and designing apps in Swift. I wanted to level the playing field when it came to computer science.
I knew it was up to me to fix this. Who better to change the coding environment for high school students than a fellow high school student? I pulled aside Emily Redler and def hacks( ) was born.
