What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is a social event where participants learn new technology creation skills and collaborate to solve real-world problems. The Charlottesville Random Hacks of Kindness event will engage 7th-9th graders in a hackathon experience where they learn new skills, collaborate, problem solve, think creatively and communicate their vision.
