Coding for a Cause run by Random Hacks of Kindness, Jr. (RHOK, Jr.) returns to the Hilltop on Saturday, December 2 from 8:30am-3:30pm. Any 4-8th grader is invited to join this afternoon event held at St. Luke’s School where they will be working with computer science mentors to create technology for social good by helping local nonprofits. Upper School students also get the chance to participate as mentors.

Android devices will be provided for building and testing apps, but students are welcome to bring your own. Participants may also bring their own laptops to work on. No prior coding experience is needed.
