CBusStudentHack Coding for Community: The Discovery District – Get Connected Contest!
On March 3, 2017 AT&T and Franklin University will kick off the second annual CBusStudentHack coding challenge. The 7-week programming contest for Central Ohio high school students which aims to provide 21st century skills via computer science education, prepare the students for college and career readiness, solve real world problems and open the doors of opportunity and creativity. To accomplish this, students will learn to code and eventually develop their own apps. Teams of 2 to 4 students will participate from Central Ohio high schools.
Students will meet at the Columbus Metropolitan Library, located at 96 South Grant Ave, Columbus, OH 43215, on March 3, 2017 to kick-off the CBusStudentHack and have the opportunity to brainstorm project ideas and hear from community leaders. Through the remainder of the 7-week period, the students will learn to create their apps. The apps must be focused on “The Discovery District – Get Connected” theme and will be judged on software quality, the potential impact on the Central Ohio region, execution and creativity. A team of Central Ohio area leaders will judge the students’ work, and winners will be announced at a finale event on April 28, 2017.
