Hackathons for your students

The hackathons are designed to help your students learn about AI, innovate their concept and submit all in one day. There are two ways you can engage with a hackathon, either by booking your school in for a Home Hack or running your own one at school or online (drawing on our hackathon toolkit). If you are choosing to come to a hackathon that we run, please note some of the content is the same as the lesson plans, so if you do both, your students will be doubling up!

Book one of our Home Hacks!

With plenty of Australian high school students learning from home in Term 2 of 2020, we are thrilled to be offering our Home Hacks to schools across the country. The Home Hack is a one-day innovation hackathon, run completely online in Microsoft Teams. Facilitators from Education Changemakers run the hackathon from 10:00 to 2:00 and your students receive everything they need to submit by the end of the day. The Home Hacks are now fully booked out. Download the DIY Hackathon resources to run a Hack with your students.
