Major League Hacking 2017 Hackathon Season

StuyHacks Presents

Local Hack Day

December 2, 2017 at Stuyvesant High School


StuyHacks is a community that supports high-schoolers in tech.

StuyHacks is a student-run hackathon taking place in the heart of Manhattan. We seek to expose as many high school students as possible to the creativity and innovation that technology brings. To us, hackathons are more than friendly competitions - they're opportunities to meet the great inventors, creators, and thinkers of the future. Our job is to eliminate the negative connotations that come with hacking and the technology field, and to instead replace them with the idea that coding something anyone can do, even in a weekend. We want to help trailblaze a new generation of diversity and enthusiasm for invention. Come join our movement.

Get ready, get set, get hacking!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a hackathon?

It’s a grand gathering of people to make their ideas come to life. Think out of the box, try new technologies, ask questions, make mistakes, discover a new language, and have fun!

What if I am a beginner?

That’s absolutely fine! We encourage beginners to join us. Get psyched to learn a ton from our mentors and have a blast with your teammates!

Do I need to have a finished project by the end?

Your goal should be to have a finished or almost complete project by Saturday. However, StuyHacks is ultimately a learning experience, so don't sweat it too much if you can't finish.

What should I bring?

You should bring your laptop, phone, chargers, and HYPE. All food and other accommodations will be taken care of.

Who can attend?

All students! Even though the hackathon is only for high schoolers, if you're in college or above, you can still apply to be one of our amazing mentors or volunteers!

When is the deadline to register?

The deadline to register is Nov 17, 2017.

Do I have to hack with a team?

Nope, you're welcome to hack on your own! However, only teams with 2-5 people are eligible to win prizes.

Who's coming?

We expect 300 hackers from high schools all over the tri-state area to be attending StuyHacks.

"Hackathons are exhilarating. It is always a great story and a great project when I attend a well-organized one; I'm just here to spread the culture. In my free time, I hack, write my college applications 😩, and eat mints. Definitely come visit me at the hackathon!"

"I'm a junior at Stuyvesant High School who loves coding and design. When I'm not reading, sleeping, studying, or sleeping, you'll probably catch me working on InDesign while watching How I Met Your Mother. I love meeting new people and being able to spread creativity at events like StuyHacks!"
