The TECHCORPShack coding event gives high school students the opportunity to learn about computer science in a fun, engaging and inclusive environment. Over the course of the experience, students learn how to use MIT App Inventor to explore the world of mobile app development and create an app that tackles a real-world need or problem.

It's a Wrap!

The November 6, 2021 TECH CORPS Hackathon was a statewide competition held in-person in Akron, Columbus and Zanesville. More than 60 high school students from all over the state were part of the 12-hour event that culminated with the students’ presentation of their app.

Inspiration for Your App

During the 2021 TECH CORPS Hackathon, students from all over the state of Ohio will learn how to program and develop a mobile app. We spoke with Barber App developer Kyle Parker about his experience with app development. Our hope is to inspire students that mobile app development can change lives. Through Kyle’s ClipDart app, he has inspired a movement–To raise mental wellness for men and women of color through mobile barbers.
