Hoist – Halifax Outreach Initiative for Startups and Technology

Hoist is a new tech club for teens interested in coding, design or entrepreneurship. If you’re age 12 to 19 and have an interest in startups or coding, then come check it out! (Don’t forget to bring your laptop and charger) Hoist is held on the third Saturday of every month.

What Happens at Hoist? 


The first half-hour will be a lesson from a pro on the topic of the day –

  • App basics, coding (android/ios)
  • Mentor about app build out?
  • Programmers work with each team
  • feature design session


Have some free pizza with your new friends.


Build or design something, apply what you just learned…it’s a mini hackathon. Work in a group or on your own to create the next big product or service!


Reflect and discuss the day…what did you find challenging or exciting? Chill out and talk to your new pals about what you created!
