PCHACK DAY Hackathon
Hackathons are world renowned events that are held monthly allowing for individuals who are passionate about computer programming/science to have the ability to showcase and develop their skills.
A typical hackathon is usually 24-36 hours long. Throughout the hackathon, individuals have the option to attend workshops, work on individual projects, and network with other like-minded individuals.
PCHACKERS, an organization based out of Port Credit Secondary School, is organizing an event with the similar principles to give the opportunity for Peel students to attend a hackathon.
Hackathons hosted in the GTA are usually in Toronto or Hamilton, making it harder for students who live in the Peel region to attend. Thankfully, Applewood School has been generous to assist us in hosting the event at their school. What makes their school so special is that they are a school specially designed for students who have disabilities or impairments.
There is so much amazing technology at the school to work with. The main goal of our hackathon event is to immerse individuals who are truly passionate about computer programming and technology with other individuals to grow a network, empower modern learning, and understand the importance of the applications that technology can have.
