Join The Silicon Harlem Week Hackathon 2015 (schedule)

silicon harlm weekSilicon Harlem and the Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce present the Harlem Week Youth Education and Career Conference 2.0 on Saturday, August 8th from 11am to 5pm at Our Children’s Foundation.
The event will open with a panel on “21st Century Jobs” and then follow with a hackathon, during which students will flesh out an app concept around one of three themes:

(1) Health

(2) Entertainment or

(3) Community Relations.

The day will close with team presentations and the awarding of prizes.

Hackathons are a great way for students to exercise creativity and problem solving skills and get mentored by tech and business professionals. We have already confirmed judges and mentors from premier tech companies like Microsoft, Etsy, Yelp and Google.

Youth ages 13-24 have been invited to participate, and we have diverse representation from both Harlem-based student groups and those from the broader NYC community.
