What is a Hackathon?
A hackathon is a creative marathon all about building cool things. Students are encouraged to come with an idea, form teams, and then build out that idea into a product in 36 hours. We want you to take something you love (sports, art, camping, anything!) and combine it with technology to make something awesome. It’s a great time to push the envelope and learn some new skills.
2. Who Can Participate?
We allow any high School student. Any college participant thats interested, please contact us.
3. What if I can’t code?
This is the perfect opportunity to learn something new! There will be workshops geared towards beginners and mentors to help you throughout the event
4. How Much is It?
HackSCHS is free! Food, beverages, swag, workspaces, and sleeping areas will be provided. You just have to travel to the event and we will take care of the rest! 🙂
5. What if I don’t have an team?
