TitanHacks: High School Online Hackathon

TitanHacks is an online high school hackathon that will run April 11-12. High school students will come for the weekend and team up to build an app, game, or website. Workshops, games, and raffles mean fun for everyone from the beginning programmer to the seasoned hackathon veteran. After a day of hard work, judges will pick the best projects and give prizes. Come to meet new friends, create something new, and have fun!
