Thank You for Supporting ANova Hacks 2019!

March 24, 2019

This past weekend, we invited 93 student hackers from under-resourced high schools throughout the Bay Area to ANova Hacks 2019. Thank you so much for donating to our Crowdfunding Campaign and being one of our earliest sponsors!

 

Our Impact

  • We had 33 project submissions from student teams.

  • 74.4% of students were first-time hackers at ANova Hacks 2019.

  • 91.4% of students felt that ANova Hacks helped them prepare for college and Computer Science.

  • There was a 35.6% increase in students who felt comfortable making their own projects independently or with help from mentors, friends, and online research.

  • There was a 17.3% increase in students who felt comfortable asking for help on topics in Computer Science.

 

BART Tickets and Covo

ANova Hacks was held at Covo, a beautiful coworking space in the heart of SF. Of our 55 BART ticket recipients, 64.1% of recipients indicated that they would have had some level of difficulty attending the hackathon without the BART ticket, and 25% of recipients specified that they would not have been able to attend ANova Hacks at all without the BART ticket. 

 

Your donations went directly towards providing BART tickets to students and securing this amazing venue!

Once again, thank you so much for supporting ANova Hacks 2019. We're working hard to make this the best one yet!

$4000 raised (and more)!

November 10, 2018

We did it! With 5 days left, we’ve hit our goal of $4000! Thank you so much to all our amazing donors—whether you donated just yesterday or on the very first day, every single dollar has contributed to the total $5130 raised for ANova Hacks.

ANova Hacks is tentatively scheduled for March 15-16, 2019. The Events Committee toured Covo on Friday, and we’re super excited host ANova Hacks there again. With $4000 raised, we can now secure this awesome venue space!

Every amount above $4000 will go towards providing BART tickets for students to come to the hackathon. Last year, many students were unable to attend ANova Hacks because they didn’t have a ride; we hope to prevent this with pre-paid BART tickets.

Thank you for choosing to be a part of this journey and helping make this event possible. Spread the news about ANova Hacks by sharing this page and liking our Facebook page!

Final Stretch!

November 08, 2018

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported ANova Hacks 2019! With just seven days left in our crowdfunding campaign, we've already reached 83% of our goal. We are super excited to make ANova Hacks a reality, and with your help, we'll be able to secure a safe and beautiful venue where our students will be able to attend workshops, learn about Computer Science, and program creative, unique projects of their own.

 

With this being the final stretch, we have $670 left to raise! We sincerely appreciate your continued support of our event, and we can't wait to bring ANova Hacks 2019 to life, thanks to your help!

We're More Than Halfway There!

November 01, 2018

We're super excited to announce that we are now more than halfway to our goal of $4,000 for ANova Hacks 2019!

 

We truly appreciate all the awesome donors who have supported us thus far -- with 2 weeks left, and with your help, we'll be able to give our students an immersive and educational hackathon experience at Covo in San Francisco. We're very excited to put this beautiful venue to good use by giving students the mentorship, workshops, and space they need to code a unique project that they feel passionate about and can call their own.
