ANova Hacks 2019 is a 24-hour hackathon for high school students run by ANova. It will be held starting Friday, March 15th at 6:00pm at Covo in San Francisco. Over the course of the day, students will work in teams of four to design and code a challenging project of their choosing.
Teams can opt to have an ANova mentor who will guide them throughout the day, from generating project ideas and collaborating to implementing those ideas and polishing a final product that will be showcased during the judging process. Prizes will be awarded to the top teams.
This is a great opportunity for our students to not only apply what they have been learning in the classroom, but also be exposed to crucial skills used in industry and have a better understanding of life after high school.
At the Spring 2018 ANova Hacks, we welcomed over 50 students from high schools all over the Bay. This diverse group of hackers was composed primarily of students from under-resourced high schools.
ANova Hacks provides the unique opportunity to meet and connect with others while being exposed to cutting-edge technologies used in both industry and academia. This intersectional experience yields new ideas and approaches to traditional problems.
ANova Hacks provides beginner-friendly and intermediate workshops over the course of the hackathon, ranging from general informational college workshops to web development and intro to Python. With Facebook’s support, we will also be offering an Oculus Virtual Reality demo and intro to security workshop.
ANova Hacks aims to cater to each student's needs regardless of their experience, so that by the end of the day, they will have a finished product to show-off to their friends and family.
