Digitize is a hackathon for high school students in the Bay Area, taking place overnight from October 13-14, 2018 from Saturday at 10am to Sunday at 1pm. Our goal is to educate students about computer science and programming by providing them with workshops and mentors, so by the end of the hackathon, each team will have a project to present in front of our judging panel.
