On April 7, Appleton North High School will be hosting HACKAppleton from 9a.m.-6p.m. HACKAppleton is an annual student-run hackathon held in the spring at Appleton, Wisconsin. It is organized by the Appleton Youth Education Initiative (AYEI), a student-driven non profit organization seeking to better prepare Wisconsin students for their transition into higher education and to face the challenges and opportunities of adult life. Through HACKAppleton, students interested in computer science will have a fantastic opportunity to gain experience working in a team, technical practice, and a chance to engage with both local and international tech leaders.
Teams of four will compete to create the best software tool for the WI business community. Participants must be enrolled in a WI school and be in grades 7-12. There will be over $2000 in prizes such as Microsoft Surface Pros, Xbox Ones, Raspberry PIS, and drones! This is a free event and food will be provided.
Where: Appleton North High School, 5000 N Ballard Rd, Appleton, WI 54913
