Halsey Hackathon – Animal Rescue

The Halsey Technology Department will be holding a Hackathon on Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM.  If your child is interested, please fill out the form attached.  Parents are welcome to join us at 2:30 PM in the auditorium for presentations and awards ceremony.

You may ask, “What is a Hackathon,” well “a hackathon is an event, usually hosted by a tech company or organization (our school), where programmers (or learners in our case) get together for a short period of time to collaborate on a project or solve a problem through programming.  Hackathons are a lot of fun and are a great learning experience.  If you wish for your child to attend, please return the consent form to me, Ms. Elfers ASAP in Room 301.  If I am not in my room, your child may slip it under my door.  There is a limited number of participants allowed so they will be accepted on a first come first serve basis.

Any questions please email me at pelfers@schools.nyc.gov
