Hackathon Jr. at Glazer Children's Museum is a coding event for children ages 9 – 13 working to help children learn technical skills through collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and community.
What sets Hackathon Jr. apart is our goal of instruction at these events. Our events will include TED style talks to inspire children and teach about the concepts our “Junior Hackers” could use both at and after the event. We plan to accomplish this through workshops the children can attend held by mentors in the industry, therefore supporting the idea of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education for our participants while also using an empathetic approach to learn such skills.
Winners of our coding competitions will earn more than just a trophy, building on our team’s goal of education, the coders will compete for scholarships to further their education beyond high school.
