CS50 at NEST+m is an adaptation of Harvard University's popular CS50: An introduction to the intellectual enterprises of computer science and the art of programming. CS50 has become the most popular course at Harvard and is now offered at Yale as well.
It a tradition at Harvard, for CS50 students to have an all-night Hackathon, where they have the opportunity to work on final projects alongside classmates and staff.
The NEST+m CS50 Hackathon is a new tradition at NEST+m where students can be introduced to or practice their programming skills, with lots of support, while working on CS50 problem sets. Our Hackathon happens on a Saturday, from 10am to 3pm, which allows students the opportunity to break free of the constraints of a 43-minute class period.
