Youth Hackathon a Huge Success


More than 40 children as young as 8 years old, recently brought their laptops, imagination and teamwork
to The Tech Garden for the first-ever youth hackathon in Central New York. The hackathon, powered by
AT&T, was a collaboration among Tech4Kidz, The Tech Garden and Hack Upstate, and was born out of
a desire to expand coding opportunities for Syracuse-area youth. The young participants built apps,
games, websites, animations and interactive stories related to cyberbullying and internet safety, while
being judged on their teamwork, imagination, as well as code and design skills. Mentors from area
colleges, tech companies and local developers assisted the participants.
