HACKING BEGINS IN:

What is WolfHacks
WolfHacks is a hackathon organized by the Chinguacousy SS SADC. We target students who have an interest in STEM and organize this cost-free event so they can exhibit their skills through a challenge. This year we look forward to having a virtual hackathon that will still aim for the same course of action that an in-person hackathon would have.
Students will be able to develop strong inquiry and communication skills, increased confidence in problem solving, critical thinking skills through analysis and evaluation of products and empirical results as well as the technological and scientific habits of mind. This will be nurtured through hands-on design and investigation. Additionally they will be able to, funnel their inspiration and creativity into the fields of science and technology and train their minds to see future possibilities that have not yet been imagined.
WolfHacks will primarily focus on STEM. Along with the implementation of experiential learning, collaboration, and an exquisite design problem, students will have the chance to display their problem solving and analytical thinking. We provide students with advanced skills using technological equipment, and the opportunity to apply those skills in an engaging way. Furthermore, we emphasize critical thinking, creativity, and group dynamic skills and prepare students for further studies in medical, engineering, business, and technological disciplines.
Investing in WolfHacks will allow you to engage with future developers and contribute to their collaborative experiences. This will allow you to have a positive impact on the community and become an inspiration to many young STEM enthusiasts. Become a sponsor and help make this event the best it can be!

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
This conference is absolutely free! There are no fees of any sort to worry about.
What do I need to participate?
To participate, all you will need is a computer or laptop that can connect to the internet.
Who can attend?
All Peel students from Grades 7 to 12 can participate. Although technical experience is great, students with non-technical backgrounds and interests, like science or social science, are welcome as well.
What if I don't have an idea?
That’s completely normal! Once you start collaborating with other people, you'll be sure come up with something special. You can also work with somebody else on their idea if you like it. Additionally, there will be prizes at the event, which might help you think of some ideas.
What if I don't know how to code?
Hackathons are beginner friendly. Attending a hackathon is an excellent way to learn how to code, or to strengthen existing coding skills. We will have experienced mentors who can help individuals or groups who may not have attended a hackathon before, or are new to programming in general.
What if I don’t want to present my hack?
You might think your project is incomplete, or uninpressive. 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!

Will Wolfhacks be conducted in person or virtually?
For the first time ever, WolfHacks will be a virtual hackathon! All the day's activities and events will take place online.
What if I don't have a team?
Check for existing teams in local circles, like your local makerspace or your school's computer science club. You can even assemble your own team with your friends. Remember, you or your teammates don't necessarily require programming knowledge, so feel free to bring anyone who's interested. Teams can also be made at the event.
What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is an event where many programmers who are like-minded work on a collaborative project or challenge provided by the organizers. The purpose of a hackathon is to get people who are attentive and like to use their innovative minds to design a prototype for a specific challenge.
