What is Katy Youth Hacks?
Katy Youth Hacks is a 36-hour long hackathon for students from all around the world.
Our theme for this year is sustainability - we hope to guide participants to take a greater role in fighting social problems while encouraging underrepresented groups to engage in computer science and tech development.
By challenging students to solve real-world problems with technology, KatyYouthHacks aims to inspire the next generation of developers.
