The Nano Hacker Squad started as a pilot initiative by mentor Pedro Ha.
The focus is to mentor very tech-enthusiastic kids from CoderDojo NYC as a hackathon team, originally for the annual Young Rewired State (YRS) Hackathon Festival of Code. This year they competed in NYC BigApps.
- the hackathon building and learning model
- Hacker Hours (for adults) that Aidan Feldman started in NYC few years ago
- interests in facilitating collaborative learning web technologies for kids
They are currently running their program in collaboration with Iridescent, a science education non-profit with their location in the Bronx, NY to serve underrepresented youth.
The program is full for this year, but sign-up for our newsletter to hear about upcoming opportunities.
