Seidenhack 2020

Seidenhack 2020: Hack the Oysters

Who’s ready to hack? Join us for the first ever Seidenhack - a three day hackathon for high school students who want to get new skills, meet people, and grab a taste of the Pace University college experience!

Held over December 4th-6th, 2020, Seidenhack will involve learning to code games, build mobile apps, use design thinking, learn about the Billion Oyster Project, and work with a team to present your ideas!

Led by Pace University faculty Dr. Christelle Scharff, and Professors Carmine Guide and Dhruvil Gandhi, the hackathon will introduce students to tools such as MIT App Inventor for mobile app development and UNITY for game development, Slack for communication, and Mural for team activities.
