The new ISTE Student Hackathon will happen live during ISTE 2018! A hackathon is an innovation marathon where students can identify, research and solve real-world problems. The term “hacking” has evolved over the years to describe the act of quickly and intelligently creating a real application/solution that others can use. Programmers, designers, builders and free thinkers will come together to learn, build and share their creations over the course of a few days. This event is for high school students.
Student presenters are a vital part of what makes ISTE the most influential edtech event in the world. Thank you for your valuable contribution to the ISTE conference program!
Badged student presenters (under the age of 16) are invited into the expo hall in groups of five or fewer when accompanied by an adult chaperone. Badged students sign this form agreeing to follow rules of “good behavior” in the expo hall. Badged chaperones sign this form agreeing to be responsible for the behavior of the student presenters in their group. So far, ISTE has not received exhibitor complaints resulting from this policy and we rely upon the adult chaperones and the students to help us maintain this privilege.
ISTE’s good-behavior standard includes:
- Maintaining low and courteous noise levels,
- Staying together as a group,
- Only taking exhibitor giveaways if offered to you.
Chaperones agrees to keep student presenters in their groups with me at all times. They ensure that the student presenters in the group are on time for any conference sessions or events they are participating in. They also agree to be responsible for the safety and welfare of their student presenters while at the conference.
