Qeyno's Hackathon Academy prepares high potential youth in low opportunity settings to become next generation developers, designers, and innovators in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and is made possible by our alliance network of mentors, sponsors, and community partners.
Hackathons By The People...
Hackathons gather together technologists (coders), artists (designers), and problem solvers (innovators) to brainstorm, design, and build a web or mobile app that can change the world, create a business, or both!
...For The People...
Traditionally, hackathons are too male, too white, and too unhealthy. Hackathon Academy is the cure for the traditional hackathon model.
...With The People.
As the leading provider of youth hackathons for inclusive innovation, our three-day hackathon schools are designed to create a futuristic experience for youth and their communities.
All meals prepared for Hackathon Academy participants are selected from local vendors based on their nutritional value. Meals are selected that will enhance mental and physical performance and contribute to overall wellness.
Our participants are introduced to healthier living options through high protein snacks, organic foods, and vegetarian/vegan offerings that help them reach and maintain peak levels of performance. These choices also contribute to the preservation of overall wellness for achieving personal goals and develop winnable habits.
