This session provides an overview of the goals and objectives of the New York City Department of Education’s Hack League, a district-wide competition that invites middle and high school students with any level of CS experience to explore the systemic impacts and applications of computing. By requiring participants to interact with data and prototype a proposed solution to an issue that the data illuminates, students creatively engage in a human-centered design and strategic problem-solving process aimed at improving quality of life and civic issues in their communities. Each stage of competition represents a component of the engineering design process, thereby encouraging students to be thoughtful programmers.

Join us as we talk about the Computer Science for All Blueprint, how Hack League is constructed, its impact, and stories about student projects.
