Register Here

The 3rd Annual High School Hackathon is a free all-day event for students in grades 9–12 who are interested in code, design, product development, or business. Students will form teams and be matched with mentors who will help bring their ideas to life. At the end of the day, parents and friends are invited to come see the results.

Do I need to know how to code?

No experience necessary! Students will be introduced to the fast-paced world of technology and learn a lot along the way.

What is the cost?

FREE! We’ll also provide breakfast, lunch, supper and snacks.

Do I have to register?

Absolutely! Click here to get started: uitstartup.org/hack

Are there prizes?

Of course! Prizes will be awarded for most creative, most useful, most fun, best tech, and best design.

But wait, there’s more!

Grade 12 students wishing to register for Cape Breton University’s UIT Startup Immersion for September 2017 will have their CBU registration fee waived and be entered into a draw to win a bursary worth $300 toward tuition.
