Sun, March 22
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Do you like to code? Do you want to code? Have you tried to learn to code only to not know how to get started?
Join us on Sunday, March 22nd from 9am – 4pm at the Integrated Sciences Building at UMass Amherst for the NERDS2020 Hackathon!
Programming Mentors will be available on Sunday from 9am to 4pm to support 2-3 groups through the hackathon project:
Group 3: The most advanced group would be given a short list of external APIs and asked to “build something”
Group 1: Kids (ages 8+) interested in programming can explore with Scratch and experiment with some basic Python code
Come join us for a day of networking, learning, and practical hacking — make new friends, sharpen your skills and develop new ones in a fun and encouraging setting.
Lunch will be provided and the Hackathon is FREE!
