HackSC Junior is a pre-college hackathon at the University of Southern California aimed at increasing the
participation of young girls and kids from underrepresented backgrounds in tech. With the help
of our amazing sponsors, in our first year (last year!), we held two hackathons and were able to host over 300 kids
at our events (triple our expectation!). Over 53% of our participants had their first introduction to tech and programming.

I want to attend [Life Hacks 2.0] because I have been practicing Scratch for some time. I would be nice to put these skill to the test and have some fun and learn some extra coding along the way. It was very fun last year.
