Youth Who Code Inter-School Hackathon March 2021
Youth Who Code is inviting all students from international schools around Tokyo to take part in the largest inter-school Hackathon in Japan. We will provide students with training and guidance as they form teams to come up with a project that will be centered around various social issues that have arisen due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
We hope that through this event, students will be able to showcase their technological know-how to the greater community in Japan while providing their unique perspectives in working on a project that has real-life implications

Twelve High School students joined the event. Most of them are first-time Python programmers. 

We have one Seisen-only group who won the second prize, one student joined in the other group, her group won the third prize.  The other student we have were placed in different groups with other international schools.
