StuyHacks Local Hack Day
2017 Has Ended!
Subscribe to hear about our next StuyHacks.
StuyHacks is a student-run hackathon taking place in the heart of Manhattan. We seek to expose as many high school and middle 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!
Registration is open until Nov 25, 2017.Register To Hack
Mentors play a huge role at StuyHacks. We're looking for mentors who are knowledgeable, passionate, and eager to offer guidance to join us! Apply by Nov 25, 2017.Become a Mentor
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! Read more on Medium.
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!
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.
You should bring your laptop, phone, chargers, and HYPE. All food and other accommodations will be taken care of.
All students! Even though the hackathon is only for high schoolers and middle schoolers, if you're in college or above, you can still apply to be one of our amazing mentors or volunteers!
The deadline to register is Nov 17, 2017.
Nope, you're welcome to hack on your own! However, only teams with 2-4 people are eligible to win prizes.
We expect 300 hackers from middle/high schools all over the tri-state area to be attending StuyHacks.
