HoT Schedule & Zoom Links

HoT will occur on Saturday, March 27, 2021. All times are CST. 

We realize that with creating an entirely virtual large-scale event, challenges in this new format may occur. We recognize that screen fatigue can be a real consequence of prolonged exposure to technological devices. To mitigate this, we’ve built in screen breaks and optional events where students may step away from their device before moving on to the next HoT event.

9:30-9:45 am - Welcome
