Turn your big ideas into tech solutions for civic problems during two action-packed days at the TeenTechSF Civic Hackathon @MakeSchool. First-time hackers welcome!

This year’s theme is “Tech Where You Live.” We’ll be focusing specifically on the opportunity to use technology to solve problems in the communities where we live. Beginner friendly, we’ll have experienced mentors from TeenTechSF and Make School on hand to help turn your tech dreams into reality plus workshops on game design, website & app development, pitch development, electronic circuitry with @MakeyMakey, coding with @Arduino, rapid prototyping with @littleBits, and pitch development. Sign up as a team or make new friends & join a team on the day of the hackathon.

Cool prizes from @MakeyMakey, @littleBits, @LeapMotion, and more!
