On Saturday March 9th, high school students from Sampson County Schools Upward Bound participated in Code the Dream’s Hackathon in Durham, NC. Juan Perez, Michael Pineda, Erica Quintana, KeAusja Chestnutt, and Katie Luengas were selected for the Code the Dream Future Scholars Internship. Over the past two the months they built a website with Code the Dream for their organization, Sampson County Schools Upward Bound using Squarespace. During the Hackathon, these talented students spent several hours throughout the morning and afternoon building two more websites for nonprofits in Sampson County: Rotary Clinton Club and Kiwanis Club of Sampson County.
Rotary Clinton Club is a chapter of Rotary International and Kiwanis Club of Sampson County is chapter Kiwanis International. They learned how to design and style websites throughout the course of their internship. On the day of the Hackathon, they were able to build two websites from scratch in just a few hours! We are so proud of their hard work!
