The Raccoons is an online community that empowers students who are eager to learn by providing an environment for them to explore, learn, build, and create. With the sudden changes our world is facing, now it is more important than ever to facilitate a general knowledge of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) skills, as those are increasingly important to almost all fields.
The Raccoons team has decided to bring an online experience aimed at youngsters with any level of experience and tries to foster an environment for curiosity towards tech and exploration by organizing workshops around STEM and technology sector, hosting hackathons, and providing online content to learn more about the variety of tech fields.
We are a student organization with a keen interest in the latest technology and science. We believe that technology should be known to everyone, regardless of industry, so we have created different types of activities that allow you to get to know technology and science better, try your hand at programming.
A 48-hour event during which a student splits into teams and works on creating a new website, application or game. Workshops also take place during the hackathon, where you can learn programming and apply the newly acquired knowledge during the event.
Workshops on the basics of programming, various computer principles, such as computer vision and machine learning.
Inspiring stories from developers, scientists and technology executives about how their daily lives in this environment are and how they got there.
