Join us at High School I/O—a one day hackathon for high schoolers hosted by OHI/O, Ohio State's hackathon program, and Root Insurance. We aim to provide high school students an opportunity to learn about computer science in a fun, engaging, and inclusive environment.

Meet and work with other passionate, fun and creative students to build real technology projects. There will also be the opportunity to develop new friendships, build connections with professional mentors, and learn soft skills for success in the real world. The event is free of cost for participants!
