XdHacks Mini

Bridging the gaps of our interdiscplinary world

What is XdHacks Mini?

XdHacks Mini is a global highschool hackathon nonprofit dedicated to teaching students the importance of interdisciplinary learning in the modern technology industry. Our focus on students developing an interdisciplinary mindset sets us apart from other Hackathons. We highlight the significance of soft skills such as presenting a pitch, in tandem with hard skills like coding. We believe entrepreneurship, in addition to having a deep foundation within a skill like coding, sets students up best for the future.

Hack·a·thon

/ˈhakəˌTHän/

noun: INFORMAL

An event that brings together passionate students who work to solve a social issue presented as a theme. During the event, teams of 4-5 students have full creative control to develop and refine a product aimed towards a chosen theme. Typically, Hackathons span 24 hours, giving students a small amount of time to think of and create their solution. Hackers will then pitch their product to an experienced panel of judges to compete for prizes.
