This hackathon guide is designed to help educators to deliver a one-day do your :bit event for children age 8-14. The guide includes suggestions of how to plan a hackathon, suggested timings, and a slide deck to support the delivery of a do your :bit event.
We encourage you to adapt your hackathon event to suit your context. For instance, if you have two days available with the cohort of children rather than one, stretching the timings over more days allows your participants to really develop their inventions. Have fun, and happy hacking!
