TeenTechSF Civic Hackathon @TheMixatSFPL

CONGRATULATIONS to our most recent TeenTechSF Civic Hackathon winners! This year our theme was "Teens Helping Teens through Tech." Panacea, a personalized outreach app preventing teen suicide was our top winner. TeenTechSF Facebook post here.

On Nov 14&15, TeenTechSF organized the Bay Area's first student-led Civic Hackathon at The Mix at SFPL, San Francisco's new student-designed Digital Resource Center & Maker Space! An at-capacity crowd of 100+ students, mentors, speakers, workshop leaders, and volunteer organizers took over The Mix at San Francisco's main library to develop tech solutions to civic problems. Students came from a diverse range of Bay Area school and as far away as Lake Tahoe and Los Angeles. Two-thirds were first-time hackers and the winning team was an all female group of first-time hackers from five different schools who met and bonded over the course of the weekend at the TTSF Civic Hack.
