If you have a child who’s interested in computers, you may have overheard them using the term “hackathon” but don’t worry; it’s not what you think. There are no rogue things involved in a hackathon. It’s simply an excuse for computer programming fans to get together and work on a collaborative project. At iCode in Frisco, TX, we want to make coding for kids fun, which is why we’re hosting our own series of hackathons.
A hackathon is a way for your child to explore their interest in computer programming in a social environment with friends and classmates. It’s also a chance for them to have fun doing what they love. Our hackathons are all about allowing your child the chance to explore their creativity and self-expression through the collaborative programs they create with peers.
Coding for children is catching on like wildfire nowadays and more parents than ever are enrolling their children in our programming classes. If you have a child who seems drawn to computers in a special way or has a love of numbers or critical thinking, a hackathon can be just the thing for turning a hobby into a passion. At our hackathons, your children will be surrounded by a diverse group of peers of all ages, working together to create new and exciting programs while overcoming obstacles.
iCode’s first hackathon will take place on April 2, 2016, so don’t miss out on the opportunity. Children grades K-12 are welcome and students from private schools, Metroplex ISDs, and community members are all encouraged to sign up.
