Saint Francis High School's Second Annual LancerHacks!

LancerHacks is the second annual twelve-hour hackathon organized by sfhacks, the student-led programming club at Saint Francis High School. In partnership with the school, LancerHacks will take place on Saturday, February 9, 2019, on our campus in Mountain View, CA, and will host approximately 200 students from local high schools. 

Drawing from the strength of our school’s mission to “educate hearts and minds to serve the world,” the theme of LancerHacks 2019 is improving or developing a computer-science innovation to positively impact the community. Supplementing the main project-development element of the hackathon through a variety of challenges and events, LancerHacks will emphasize collaboration among attendees, mentorship from peers and industry experts, attendance at speaker sessions and workshops, and the big picture of computer science and its various daily-life applications. We will encourage interested students of all levels of expertise to attend the event to experience how the power of computer science can be leveraged in numerous fields and how this potential is enhanced when one applies a creative and personal touch. The underlying message of LancerHacks is that computer science is for everyone: it is not just for males, or just for logicians; it requires a variety of perspectives, an ability to think outside of the box, and a level of social awareness and involvement to identify an area of need in the community that computer science has the potential to improve.
