sq Hackathon–Website Remix
Wednesday, March 12  •  4:00-6:00 p.m.   •  Carnegie Community Room
You or you and your team have one hour to recreate a website in the most outlandish way possible. No coding experience required. We’ll show how to use X-Ray Goggles, a browser extension that lets you change the text and images on most websites. After a short walkthrough, your challenge is to get creative and remix a site. We’ll share them online (so make sure it’s something mom can see). The winner will receive a Makedo kit; runners-up will receive high fives! If you want a little practice, visit https://goggles.webmaker.org/ to download X-Ray Goggles. DROP IN or REGISTER a team.
