CBusStudentHack is a 7-week programming contest organized by Franklin University for High School students around the Central Ohio region. The event aims at promoting computer science education and providing High School students with 21st century skills needed for college and career readiness. Since its inception in 2015, this event has attracted a lot of students to learn, design and develop mobile apps to solve problems relevant to their own life and make a difference in the community. Enrollment has grown significantly and tripled only in three years. The impact of this event is beyond getting students to write computer programs. It provides an opportunity to engage young students in technology education, to bring Computer Science to underrepresented groups, to empower students to bring their creativity to life, and to discover the fun and beauty in solving real problems with computing.
