Hackathon by the Sea Sponsorship

Ventura County Office of Education is looking for IT/Computer professionals to participate as mentors, volunteers or as judges at the 21-hour Hackathon by the Sea event, Friday, December 1 through Saturday December 2 .  Additionally, VCOE invites IEEE members’ companies to become a sponsor of the Hackathon by the Sea event. IEEE members interested in hearing more about sponsorship can contact Rodrigo Cardenas <RCardenas@vcoe.org> or Darrell Gooden <DGooden@vcoe.org> to discuss which opportunity best suits their needs.

Nearly 200 Ventura County high school students will participate in this 21-hour Hackathon by the Sea , as teams of 2-4 students will team up to develop a project prototype. Adult mentors with backgrounds in technology will assist students in the process of defining and executing their projects.

Although you may already be familiar with hackathons, a hackathon is a coding event in which teams “hack” together to create an awesome project like a game, website, or app. Hackathons are a great way to learn more about coding, meet new people, and most importantly build something cool!

Hackathon by the Sea is a full, 21-hour hackathon! The event formally kicks off at 7:30 PM December 1st, with hacking starting at 8:30 PM. Teams then have about 21 hours to work on their hacks. See the flyer for sponsors or flyer for participants for more information.
