The Back to School Code-A-Thon is a FREE 48 hour program that gives students an opportunity to use technology, research, and collaborate to address issues and problems confronting the human race on a global scale. Students will work together to learn to code HTML, CSS, and JavaScript while learning to use tools like GitHub to build a website that reflects their ideas and commitment to problemsolving. Prizes are available for the teams that create the top three projects in their location! This is an international event, and students will be able to speak, work, and learn with other students around the world via live video, web, and telecommunication technology!
