What are careers in tech like?
It's not uncommon for an entry level engineer to make around ~$200,000, with that number increasing. You work reasonable hours and often have the change to work remote. Here is a great website for pay ranges: https://levels.fyi
Who is this for?
Northland Hackathon is for high school students in northern Minnesota who want to learn how to make their own apps, websites, NFT's. You don't have to want to become a web guru or app developer to come. Just have a curiosity about the space and a willingness to explore and meet others along the way.
What is a hackathon?
Well what ours will look like will be a bunch of students remote rallying on a Saturday to meet each other and build together. It will be on the more relaxed end and is just as about building community as building cool stuff.
I don't know how to code. Can I come?
For sure! We're going to be sending out material before the event so you can get up to speed and get your feet wet. Also, these are great resources whenever:

Is this remote or in person?
As we're reaching out to students from across northern Minnesota, Northland Hackathon is remote to enable participation from all over the state.
How much does it cost?
Through both Californian and Minnesotan sponsors, Northland Hackathon is free for participants. If you want to sponsor or donate to the hackathon, email us [team [@] northlandhackathon.com] or you can deposit here.
Why wouldn't Iย want to do this?
You think that it isn't important or interesting to learn more about the technology you use for hours every day.
Is there a prize for best project?
We're thinking about it ;)
What is the schedule?
10 am- 11 am Opening
11 am - 1 pm Team Time
1 pm โ€“ 1:20 pm Lunch
1:30 pm โ€“ 4 pm Team Time
4 pm โ€“ 5 pm Presentations
Is there limited capacity?
We're doing our best to accommodate all applications but there will likely be a cap of how many students we can take. As a result, write a solid application and apply early.
What does it mean to 'hack?'
To 'Hack' in means to create something new and build a project. It's the digital form of lego building and is meant to be as free form as you want to make it. We may introduce a theme to the hackathon (environment, building for Duluth, etc), but the main point is to meet others, learn, and have fun by creating soemthing new.
