DULUTH, MN. (KBJR) - Some local high school students spent the weekend training to be a hacker.

Saturday was the Northland Hackathon.

As part of the day long program, students learn how to make their own apps, websites, NFT’s.

According to organizer Luke Heine, the skills these high school students are acquiring could put them on the path to a lucrative career.

“There’s a lot of money in tech, and it’s not uncommon for an engineer at Facebook to be to be easily making half a million dollars a year conservatively,” said Luke Heine, an organizer for the Northland Hackathon.

Heine said the free event was held virtually due in part to COVID-19 concerns and to allow students from across the state to take part.

Below links to some of the projects students created during the Northland Hackathon.
