The UNESCO CodeTheCurve global virtual hackathon is designed to enable students, educators, teachers, and the research community to build tech skills, entrepreneurial spirit, and professional competencies with a lens on digital creativity and cooperation to mobilize the world.
CodeTheCurve aims to inspire youth with new skills in a virtual, immersive environment in collaboration with other students, experts, and mentors, while creating deployable solutions and digital prototypes prepared by citizen developers, data scientists, and innovators with youth at the center. The CodeTheCurve learning and hackathon journey will be practical, hands-on, and a ton of virtual fun.
Anyone is invited to gather a crew of developers, data scientists, and friends from other fields (educators, teachers, and researchers), pull together a gender-inclusive group with no more than six participants, and make sure there’s at least one person under the age of 25 in your team (min. age 16). All teams must have at least one female and one male.
