Run your own hackathons

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 running your own one (drawing on our hackathon toolkit) or by coming along to one that we run. If you are choosing to come to a hackathon that we run, please note the content is the same as the lesson plans, so if you do both, your students will be doubling up!

Or come along to one of our hackathons

We are running hackathons across Australia. At our hackathons, facilitators from the Education Changemakers team run the day, pizza is provided for lunch for students and it is a fast-paced, curriculum-aligned excursion for your students. More information about the hackathons is included at the links for each location.
