Volunteer with HACK JA

Are you experienced with coding or have a background technology, web design and/or cybersecurity?

Lend JA Your Talents and Volunteer with HackJA!

Join us February 21 and February 22 at JA Education Center to help teach and mentor high school students as they explore the world of coding, cybersecurity, and development while enhancing their knowledge of careers in the exciting and growing STEM fields.

HackJA is 24-hr coding competition that teaches and tests students' computer science and technological skills.

Volunteers work in shifts to mentor middle and high school students as they explore the world of coding, cybersecurity, and development while enhancing their knowledge of careers in the exciting and growing STEM fields.

Students Will Learn: 

Web Development in HTML & CSS

Beginner workshop for students who have limited programming knowledge. Students will explore essential web design concepts by learning how to code in Html and learn how to make a website.

Intro to Phython

Beginner workshop for students who have limited programming knowledge. Students will explore essential coding concepts by learning how to code in the high-level programming language, Python.

Modern Hacking 

As technology continues to become increasingly prevalent in our daily lives, it is more important than ever for networks, computers, and data to remain secure. In this workshop, students will explore how hackers can hack into an unprotected website using SQL code and how preventive measures can be taken to avoid this.

Intro to Java

We use websites every day, but most people don’t see the code running in the background that keeps these sites up and running. In this workshop, students will learn how websites are made and later create basic websites of their own.

Advanced HTML/CSS

This is an advanced workshop for students who have prior programming knowledge and experience working with Html.  Students will explore essential coding concepts by learning how to write and implement code in CSS and add features to their websites.

Arduino MakerSpace

This is an abstract workshop which will focus on helping students working on the Arduino challenges. Rather than any presentation and lecture, this will be a MakerSpace, where students can work among others working on similar projects, so that they can receive more directed help with their projects.
