What is a high schooler to do in the middle of winter in New England? They can spend the weekend attending Blueprint, a free high school hackathon being held Feb 17 & 18th at MIT. On Saturday, students get to participate in hands-on workshops on programming and iOS development taught by MIT students and others in the industry. On Sunday, they get to work in a team to build a project from scratch with support from mentors (my son participated last year and said their mentors were very helpful in answering questions).
Guest Speaker: Andrew Sutherland, the founder and CTO of Quizlet; featured twice in Forbes Magizine's 30 under 30 list for Education
A free t-shirt and meals are provided.
