One-day app design “Hackathon” at UWG

The University of West Georgia is planning a “Hackathon” event where middle- and high-school students will conceptualize and design software to solve a problem. The program will be held on Saturday, March 11, 2023, on UWG’s main Carrollton campus.

The Hackathon program’s youth track is open to students aged 13 to 18. The youth track program does not require any programming or coding knowledge. Mentors will help the students with the technical aspects of their designs. (A separate advanced track for high-school and college students 18 and up does require basic programming skills.)

Students will work in teams. They can sign up with people they already know and want to work with, or find a team onsite.

Registration is $30, plus a $3 processing fee. If a family is unable to pay the fee, UWG will attempt to make arrangements for the registration. See the “How much does it cost to participate” area of the page linked above for contact information for financial assistance.
