(Oregonian (Portland, OR) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) April 19--A national group called Pilot plans a free, all-day hackathon at Jesuit High School this month to help boost interest in computer science education, joined by several mentors from event sponsor Intel.
PilotPDX is a free, 12-hour event open to any high school student. The hackathon sorts students into teams to conjure ideas, then collaborate in bringing those ideas to fruition and showing off the result. The event begins at 9:30 a.m. on April 26 and includes lunch, a snack and dinner. It wraps up at 9 p.m.
Participants needn't have prior software experience, but they do need to register in advance. Find more information at pdx.gopilot.org.
