High School I/O
On March 23th, 2019 over 70 Columbus-area high school students gathered to learn, network, and create. OHI/O’s third ever High School I/O provided students an opportunity to engage in computer science in an informal way. Students from over 30 high schools gathered for a one day hackathon, giving students a structured chance to explore creative design in computer science.
Students had the opportunity to interface with mentors throughout the process. Mentors helped formulate ideas, taught computer science principles, and even helped students debug code. This year’s mentors ranged from current Ohio State students, local tech employees and Ohio State alumni.
High School I/O provided students an opportunity to work in teams to build real technology projects. Students developed new friendships, built connections with professional mentors, and learned soft skills that will help them succeed in the real world.
