Hosted by members of SecondGen, CANHacks brings all of Dallas Area high schools together in one exciting 24-hour event. Make your app, website, or machine a reality with the help of experienced mentors, structured classes, and like-minded peers. Ever had that app, website, or machine you wanted to build but didn’t know where to start? Have you ever wanted to jump into the world of programming and show off an awesome product to your friends? Now is your chance. CANHacks is designed to help students take their first steps into the world of computer science and programming. You’ll have tons of mentors and like-minded peers to help you through the process of making your dream into a reality (not to mention the thousands of dollars in cash and physical prizes for the best products).
Code All Night, will take place July 24th and will be a 24 hr competition. The event will take place at 1201 International Parkway, Richardson, TX. This will be Dallas’s first high school focused summer hackathon. In this event, computer programmers, graphic designers, interface designers, and project managers who are all in high school will collaborate intensively and produce software projects such as: games,applications, robots, and a ton of other engineering projects. The competition is focused on high School students, but college students are invited as well, and beginner to advanced programmers are invited as there will be workshops for beginners to create games with not much programming experience required.

Join CGA for a very short General Meeting, followed by a family friendly presentation by Kidprov. Since 1991, Kidprov has been performing their unique brand of improv comedy for thousands of kids and parents across Texas. Formed from the blend of two masters of improv and one teacher who didn’t have his masters, Kidprov infused educational objectives into their shows without losing the fun. But all the educational trappings aside, Kidprov brings the laughs.

This workshop will be broken into two sections: The ﬁrst half will be a guided exploration learning experience and the second half will be a book club for parents with a great text to discuss!
Space will be limited, so participants will be taken on a “ﬁrst come ﬁrst serve basis.” The cost is $100 or if your child is taking 2 MOSAIC classes in June, $50. To register, contact Carrie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Calling all 6th-8th graders. Learn the basics of building electronics with Arduino.
