Oakland, CA, high school students have been entering hackathons – marathon computer hacking events – to create technology that addresses salient issues and needs in their lives. Often they compete alongside adult teams … and win! Claire Shorall, computer science teacher at Oakland’s Castlemont High School, along with several of the students she has been teaming with discuss their experience at hackathons, as well as how they deal with being at times the only hackers of color at these events.

Guests for this webinar included:
Ronye Cooper, student at Castlemont High School
Paul Oh, National Writing Project senior program associate
Claire Shorall, computer science teacher at Castlemont High School
Sandra Vivian-Calderon, student at Castlemont High School
