Additionally, Reid will speak with Hackathon participants and serve as one of the competition’s judges. #YesWeCode’s Detroit Hackathon will provide 100 Detroit middle school students training and computer programming skills to pave the way for high-tech education and careers. Students will present a final project and the concepts they learned to a panel of judges.

“I witnessed firsthand at last year’s My Brother’s Keeper Hackathon that teaching our youth the value of coding enables creativity,” said Reid. “I’m thrilled to be a guest judge to support the students of this city and the #YesWeCode program, which is essential to fostering diversity in the tech industry.”
