Teens ages 14-18 will explore technology design, innovation and application development at the Wichita Public Library’s first Teen Hackathon this summer. Throughout the weekend, teens will work in groups alongside mentors, including City Council Member Becky Tuttle, District II, and tech experts, to create a new application or another technology-based service that solves a health-related topic teens face today.
This year, the topic is “Use Technology to Measure One Healthy Habit.” Participants will be given several resources during the Hackathon to guide their progress. Mentors and tech experts will help answer questions.
On Sunday, July 28, the teams will present their finished prototype to a panel of judges. Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams.
Registration begins June 1 at 10 a.m.
Please note: participation is required for both days of the Teen Hackathon. T-shirts and lunch on Saturday will be provided.
