WHAT IS WOLFHACKS

WolfHacks is a non-profit hackathon organized by Chinguacousy Secondary School SciTech students. This year, we are inviting Peel students from Grades 7-12 to come together and design creative solutions to real-world problems.

MISSION AND VISION 

As a student-led organization, we believe that youth can change the world. We want to empower students by providing them with valuable skills, insights, and experiences in the STEM field. Through these opportunities, we envision that WolfHacks will serve as a launching pad for the next generation of problem solvers and world leaders.

Frequently Asked Questions
 

General

How much does it cost?


This event is absolutely free! There are no fees of any sort to worry about.




What do I need to participate at home?


To participate, all you will need is access to a computer that can connect to the Internet.




Who can attend?


All Peel students from Grade 7 to 12 can participate. Although technical experience can be applied during the event, all students with non-technical backgrounds and interests, like science or the arts, are welcome as well.




What if I don't have an idea?


That’s completely normal! As you collaborate with your team and brainstorm together, you will start to come up with ideas. Not to mention, mentors will also be available to guide you along the way. When working with your team, all members will be able to contribute and reflect on ideas as a group.




What if I don't know how to code?


WolfHacks is beginner-friendly and requires no technical experience, so students of all skill sets and backgrounds are welcome. Just come with an open mind and a will to learn. There are awards and prizes that designs with absolutely NO coding can win. To help you grow, there will also be fun workshops and experienced mentors than can guide you if you're new to hackathons and coding.




What if I don’t want to present my hack?


You might think your project is incomplete, or unimpressive. However, you should present it anyway! Hackathons aren't about being the best or being competitive. It’s all about having fun, making friends and learning how to become better at the things you care about. Presenting your hack gives you a chance to showcase what you’ve accomplished, so be proud and own it!




I have a question that isn't answered here!

The registration form will open on Friday, February 12th, 2021. Be sure to follow the WolfHacks social media pages for important updates. We are looking forward to reading your application!




Will WolfHacks be conducted in-person or virtually?

What if I don't have a team?


Check for existing teams in your local circles, like at your Makerspace or your school's computer science club. You can even assemble your own team with your friends. Remember, you or your teammates do not require a technical background, so feel free to bring anyone who's interested. Teams can also be made at the event.




What is a hackathon?


A hackathon is a community-based event where people from varying educational and technical backgrounds come together to form unique design solutions for real world problems. Individuals are given the opportunity to attend workshops and expand their understanding of modern technology. Hackathons are an excellent space for you to challenge yourself and gain skills necessary for the future!




Will I win any prizes?


Definitely! While learning new technical concepts and acquiring important skills, you will also be eligible for prizes throughout the event. Follow the WolfHacks social media pages for more details on this soon!




How will sponsors be able to support WolfHacks virtually this year?


Although WolfHacks will be taking place virtually this year, there are still several means by which YOUR corporation can help our hackathon become an astounding success. While providing monetary funding and other in-kind donations, your team will also be given exclusive opportunities to hold virtual workshops for our participants. As part of this sponsorship, you would receive further brand awareness by providing event mentors and judges. Click here to learn more about our sponsorship deals!
