6ixBits is a virtual, student-led hackathon open for high-school and university students, hosted by the Toronto Youth Network. It is predicated on both helping to network inspired, like-minded individuals as well as encouraging hackers to express their innate creativity and capability for innovation.

Revolving around issues of global significance, 6ixBits aims to take both beginning and skillful coders alike on a 3-day long experience that facilitates learning, growth, and networking opportunities. Most of all, we hope that 6ixBits hackers gain the courage and vision to tackle global issues in their own unique ways.

6ixBits, despite being a virtual event, is also designed to immerse hackers through workshops, keynotes, game nights and other virtual activities to provide a relaxed and memorable experience for all.

The executive team of the Toronto Youth Network are ecstatic about 6ixBits; we hope it will be an unforgettable three days for all hackers!
