Trinity School's annual hackathon - Come spend March 4th coding with us!

HackTrin V is the fifth iteration of Trinity School’s annual hackathon. Middle and high schoolers, of any experience level, can participate. You can form teams of 1-4 students, even across different schools, and work to make projects relating to coding. We'll have workshops and mentors to help you with your projects and learn! We will announce the surprise theme at our Wednesday night kickoff event the week of HackTrin, after which you can start coding, and continue until the end of the Sunday, March 4 event. You’ll present your projects to our panels of judges to win prizes in multiple categories (including a beginner category)!
