Competition Workshop Volunteering/Community Service/Social Entreprenuership

Description

Although the pandemic has caused much of the world to come to a standstill, we believe innovation and ingenuity have not ceased to exist, especially in students who have experienced the effects of COVID-19 firsthand. As a team of four motivated high school upperclassmen, we started AstraHacks, a female-led hackathon that aims to empower high school students to design an application that targets a problem being faced by society during the COVID-19 pandemic. AstraHacks 2020 will be a nine-day event starting on August 28th with guest speakers, expert mentors, workshops, and prizes. We are hoping to provide inspiration to many students whose summer programs have been canceled and would love to have you stand in support with us.

 

The hackathon takes place from August 28th, 2020 to September 6th, 2020. For more details, our Website is: https://tinyurl.com/astrahacks
