XdHacks Mini

We help students prepare to be successful business persons with a technology background. We give you a chance to host a Hackathon, join a Hackathon, or integrate your Hackathon to help spread the importance of technology and entrepreneurship in tomorrow’s world.

What is XdHacksMini?

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.

What do we do?

XdHacks Mini hosts and organizes highschool hackathons globally, connecting hundreds of students worldwide who are passionate about a career in technology. At our events, we offer workshops ranging from Design Thinking, to Resume Building, while helping students create a network within our community. We help students find local volunteer, learning, and academic organizations to grow and learn in their own time as well.. We provide a space for students to develop and learn.

What is a Hackathon?

for dreamers, developers, and designers

A Hackathon is 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.
