Teens Exploring Code presents


a python hack'shop series


This is tecHACKS IV.

⚛ 💡

In our 5-part student-run workshop series, we'll show you how programming can be fun, thought-provoking, and powerful. With various workshops, speakers, and fun activities throughout the series, TEC provides a welcoming environment perfect for first-time coders and first-time hackathon attendees.

At the end of the series, students will have the opportunity to make their own final project to tackle a real life problem, guided by our mentors.
