XdHacks Mini is a global high school hackathon organisation dedicated to challenge and inspire young minds to innovate and seek solutions for real-world problems one step at a time. XdHacks Mini HK is an extension of XdHacks, the premier college hackathon event and brings the experience of XdHacks to Hong Kong for the very first time, allowing us to nurture the youth and the future of tommorow, and to develop student's passion in STEM.Contact us Meet the Team!
Our mission is to host hackathons that inspire not only creativity and innovation in computer science but also the exploration of interdisciplinary expansion. We hope that through our hackathons, students will discover new ways in which computer science can be applied to solve real-world problems originating from various fields, from agriculture to medical and beyond. We believe that versatility is the key to success, meaning that the more broad a student's vision and adaptability is, the more opportunities exist for the student to bring positive change to our ever-changing society.
The word hackathon is a combination of "hack" and "marathon". This event brings together people who want to use technology to improve the world by solving issues in the world presented as themes in each hackathon.
Since this is our first year, only secondary students (Y6-12) from PLK CKY can participate! There are no requirements for coding languages, but it would certainly help if you had a grasp of the basics! The only requirement is to have fun!
Our hackathon will be a 2 day online event focused on creativity, technology and entrepreneurship, and participants will be given a real world problem on the day of the event, and present an original solution with their coding talents. Participants will also have the opportunity to interact with leading professionals from the STEM industry and participate in workshops!
