On February 21, 150 high school students will join us in MIT's Stata Center from 8am to 8:30pm for a whole day of learning how to write cool software – no experience necessary.
What is a learnathon?
Blueprint is MIT's first learnathon – a day of interactive classes and fun workshops designed to teach something new outside of a normal curriculum.
If you have never coded before, don’t worry! MIT students will teach and mentor you along the way in our three tracks: iOS, Android, and Web Development. At the start of the day, there will be sessions to help you install the right development tools and environments to start coding. The classes will be taught in an interactive lecture format and many mentors will be walking around to help guide you.
On February 22, about 300 high school students will gather at MIT’s Media Lab from 8am to 8pm to create a project of their choice with a team of up to 4 people.
What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is an event where people collaborate to create cool apps and software projects!
Teams will be guided by student and industry mentors who are experienced in the field. At the end of the day, you will be able to see what your fellow students created and present your project to a panel of judges. There will be many prizes, but most importantly we hope Blueprint is a rewarding hackathon experience for you!
