Description

HAC 100 - The Manchester College - HAC Manchester

High School Hack 2019

Do your students have a passion for coding?


Do they enjoy a challenge?

Are your students interested in a career in the STEM industry?

If the answer is yes, then why not enter them into the High School Hack coding competition at The Manchester College in partnership with HAC100. An inter-school coding comptetion.

We are inviting up to ten schools from around Greater Manchester to compete to win “Best High School” at the first ever HAC100 High School Hack. Coding challenges will be set by sponsoring tech companies, teams will be judged throughout the day and the best submission will win the Best High School trophy. Other prizes will be awarded on the day for teamwork and communication. Students will also have the opportunity to meet employers from the STEM industry.

Date: Tuesday 25th June

Schedule: 9:30am – 5.00pm

9:30am - Registration/Intro presentations

4.00pm - Awards/Outro presentation

Each participating school can enter a team of 4 pupils taken from Years 9-11.

HAC100 have been running hackathons for adults since 2012. In 2015 they began running youth hacks for those aged 8 to 18 and have delivered 15 successful youth events so far. The Manchester College have teamed up with them to deliver a one-day event on Tuesday 25th June.

Our aim is for this to become an annual competition, showcasing the hidden coding skills within our local High Schools and to steer more young people towards careers within the STEM fields, particularly software engineering.

We’ve designed a poster to help promote the competition in your school, and encourage students to form a team. We can’t wait to meet the problem solvers of the future!

Be one of the first schools to submit a team and demonstrate the hidden talent we have within our schools.

If you would like to submit a team then please complete the eventbrite booking form and we will get back to you.
