Highschool I/O High School Hackathon


Although our giving page is no longer active, you can still donate. If you would like to provide any additional support to our project, please do so here. 


High School I/O is a one day hackathon for high school students hosted by OHI/O, Ohio State's program for hackathons & informal experiential learning in tech. 


We aim to provide high school students an opportunity to learn about computer science in a fun, engaging, and inclusive environment. Students will work in teams to build real technology projects. Students will also gain the opportunity to develop new friendships, build connections with professional mentors, and learn technical skills that will help them succeed in the real world. At the end, teams have the opportunity to present their projects to friendly judges and win cool prizes!
