About Your Trip

HexLabs presents Catalyst, a day of STEM-related activities directed toward high school students all throughout Georgia! We hope to see you on Saturday, November 5th and Saturday, November 12th at Georgia Tech! This will be an opportunity for participants to:

  • Learn about the world of STEM and Computer Science as a career path
  • Gain insight into impactful, widely-known technology companies
  • Receive mentorship from college students and other industry professionals
  • Connect with opportunities at Georgia Tech to further their education and exposure

During the Day

Throughout the day, there will opportunities for students to engage and connect with various industry professionals and college students. We want to show high school students the value of computer science, which is why we are providing all of the resources you'll need to get started!

NEW: Catalyst Cohort

We are introducing a cohort program that extends the vision of our Catalyst learn-a-thon. A select group of students will have the opportunity to join the Catalyst Cohort. Those who join the cohort will have a two-month immersive introductory STEM experience in web development before our learn-a-thon event! In addition to the extended exploration into web development, students will have the opportunity to engage in extracurricular activities, like field trips, office visits, and campus tours, for insight into professional and academic possibilities. Cohort members will also have access to and work with HexLabs mentors to complete a unique personal project!

Our goals

  • To foster connections between students with like-minded interest in computer science
  • To create a community beyond students’ high schools for discussion, interaction, and innovation
  • To encourage the long-term development of students’ ability to create impactful projects

You can apply for the cohort below!
