In 2017 we launched the first hackathon for young coders in the Rhine-Main region. This year we are proud to announce: The fifth Jugend hackt FFM hackathon will take place June 17th to 19th! #jhffm2022


Jugend hackt welcomes young coders for the fifth time in Frankfurt

From 17th to 19th of June Jugend hackt FFM will take place at the jugend-kultur-kirche sankt peter. During the three days participants will discuss with like-minded peers, critically question technology, code, experiment and develop their own prototypes, digital tools and concepts in order to find out how we can improve the world. They are supported by tech-savvy mentors who will introduce them to a variety of tools and methods such as 3D printing, sensor technologies or camera systems.

We are especially happy about registrations from people who are still underrepresented in technology, such as girls, people with disabilities or with a migration background.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve participated in Jugend hackt before, or if this will be your first event. Everyone is welcome!

Sign up for Jugend hackt!

About Jugend hackt

Jugend hackt is a program developed by Open Knowledge Foundation Deutschland e.V. and mediale pfade. Designed to support and promote young coders the hackathon aims at providing opportunities for young talents in the area of software development and tech and ‘improving the world with code’. Guided by mentors with technical expertise, participants use Open Data to work on prototypes and concepts in order to contribute to their version of a better society. The goal of Jugend hackt is to empower young coders, teach them new skills, point out creative and political opportunities to apply these and thereby foster experiences of self-efficacy.
