HackGT’s Day of STEAM

Catalyst is a free event held on Saturday April 7th from 9AM to 8PM, where metro Atlanta high school students will explore technology and learn from mentors at Georgia Tech and our sponsors.

No experience required!


During the Day

Throughout the day, students will follow one of three tracks: Design, Development, or Hardware. Each track will have workshops and will end in students taking their projects home! In addition to the track workshops, there will opportunities for students to engage with industry professionals and college students.

We want to show high school students the value of Computer Science, which is why we are providing free food, free swag, and everything needed to get started.
