Lyonhacks II Hackathon 2022 event
We are excited to announce the Lyonhacks II Hackathon, running from noon April 15th to noon April 17th.
William Lyon Mackenzie CI’s Programming Club will be hosting LyonHacks II, a 48-hour hackathon sponsored by ECOO spanning from April 15th to 17th.
A hackathon is a programming competition that challenges students to design and pitch a program to a panel of judges. Students will brainstorm a creative solution to a theme that will be released at the start of the competition period. During the hackathon, there will be workshops and guest speakers to provide students with the opportunity to learn new skills. Furthermore, mentorship will also be offered to any students who may need help.
Overall, LyonHacks II is a tremendous learning experience for any students interested in programming or technology. In addition, there are more than $250 in prizes to be won!
All Ontario middle and high school students ages 13-18 are invited to compete, forming teams of up to 4. All interested students should register individually using the following form and teams will be formed during the competition window. Signups will be open until Thursday, April 7th at 11:59pm.
