San Diego, CA – The Academy of Our Lady of Peace (OLP), the oldest high school and only all-girls’ school in San Diego, will hold its inaugural Hackathon event on Saturday, September 7, 2019, at OLP, located at 4860 Oregon Street, San Diego, CA. The event invites girls, grades eight through 12, who are interested in collaboration and finding solutions for modern problems. This year’s theme is centered around environmental sustainability.

The day will include Hackathon problem solving, group presentations and expo, and judging and awards. The full-day Hackathon starts with registration at 7:45 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m. The cost is $18 per person and includes snacks, lunch, and event swag. The Hackathon will be a friendly competition and teams will present their solutions to a panel of judges.

The inaugural Hackathon will feature keynote speaker, Cody Hooven, Chief Sustainability Officer for the City of San Diego. The event will be hosted by OLP’s Engineering Projects in Community Service Club.

Participants will practice important skills such as researching, analyzing data and communicating within a group of workers.
