Explore the world of computer science

The 7 Week Challenge (7WC) is a series of events hosted by Vincent Massey’s Computer Science Club (VMCSC) in partnership with Canada’s oldest and largest high school hackathon, MasseyHacks. The 7WC is an extension of MasseyHacks’ goal to inspire innovation, the development of big ideas, and a passion for learning.

Learn new skills and technologies

Each week will feature a new topic as well as a diverse spectrum of workshops, activities, and challenges for students to further apply their knowledge. Below are the weeks and a general overview of each one!


How much does it cost to attend the 7 Week Challenge?

Admission to the 7 Week Challenge is completely free! We will provide all the resources, mentorship, and support needed for each week’s activities and challenges.

Will the 7 Week Challenge be happening in person or virtually?

Due to local health restrictions, we will be hosting the 7 Week Challenge virtually.

What platform will the 7 Week Challenge use?

The 7WC will be held through Discord. Workshops and ceremonies will be delivered through a web-conferencing solution.

Who can participate?

Any student in grade 7 to grade 12 can register to be a participant. If you've graduated from high school, we welcome you to apply as a mentor!

Do I need to know how to program?

Not at all — in fact, we encourage newcomers to come and participate in the 7 Week Challenge.

Can I work in a team?

Although guided workshop activities and projects are primarily catered toward individuals, we encourage you to collaborate with fellow participants to discuss solutions and ideas.

How will I know if I got accepted?

Once you’ve submitted your application, keep an eye out on your email and application dashboard for further updates.

Code of Conduct?

To ensure an event is safe and enjoyable for everyone, we ask that hackers follow the 7WC Code of Conduct. If you have any questions or would like to inform us of any issues, please email us at hello@vmcs.club.
