How sweet!  KA’s summer interns bond over ice cream. The expression on Peter’s face sums things up pretty well. (Peter is front left in the hoodie)

Double trouble: & miles enjoy a quick break during the hackathon.  To take their  act to the next level, the pair test out whether strengthening the core is more or less challenging with their eyes closed. TeaRex joins in…triple trouble?

Oh, the Things You’ll Hack!

We’re a poetic bunch around here, from haiku dev updates to Dr. Seuss wedding vows, we’ve spanned the gamut. So, makes sense we kick off this year’s hackathon accordingly: 

You have hacks in your head

But never the time
The last thing you need
Is to be reading a rhyme.
But lo and behold, an opportunity rises
To hack hacks and make makes and prize all sorts of prizes.
It’s the third time around and a chance for some firsts
Hackathon Healthy Academy Khan — now read that reversed.
Some hacks will work well
They’ll change lots of lives
We’ll ship ‘em bug-free
And exchange five high-fives.
Except when they don’t.
Because, sometimes, they won’t.
I’m afraid that some hacks
Might not even ship
That’s ok! Time for fun!
Hack make build, let ‘er rip.
And of course this is not complete without Ilan’s / Dr. Seuss’ finale: 
And will you succeed?
You will, yes indeed
Ninety eight and three quarters percent guaranteed!

"It’s not my job to teach you math; it’s your job to learn math; it’s my job to teach you how to learn."

On the wall at Oakland Unity High School, which uses KA to learn math in a mastery-based environment

Summer is my favorite time at KA because that’s when interns are here, and they are the best. Really. 
What they did this time to make me smile (aka make me jealous that I’m not an intern): Intern tea time. By the Tea Rex.

Welcome aboard, dragon rider!  KA’s crew does movie night in style, viewing “How to Train Your Dragon 2” with not one, but rather fittingly, TWO dragons. Roar!

Canadian, eh?

With an ever-growing group of Canadians at KA, we celebrated Canada’s birthday in style this year. 

No worries though - not to be outdone, the Americans made sure there was an epic 4th of July celebration. Thanks to Madeleine Traver for hosting!
