You don't have to be a coding whiz to be a hacker.
SET.Hacks() is a beginner-focused high school hackathon that empowers every student to start coding the future. With 20+ workshops, 40+ mentors and 6 guided learning tracks, our mission is to kickstart your journey into tech.
Over 3 days of pre-hackathon workshops and 48 hours of hacking, we'll equip you with everything you need on your mission. Regardless of your background or experience, we want to see your ideas and help you bring them to life!
Continuous round of hacker registrations is open at bit.ly/set-hacks-apply until August 15 @ 10:00 AM
For judging, make sure you include the following in your submission:
- A 3-5 minute video pitch
Make sure to explain what your project is, the impact of it and provide a demo of how it would be used! Some ideas might inlcude screen recording with a voiceover, creating a slide deck, recording it through Google meets or Zoom, or maybe even making a scripted skit. Get creative and show off your hard work!
- Github or code repository
If you collaborated on Github, please link your code repository in your submission so that we can take a look!
- Your Devpost page
Please fill in the rest of the details in your Devpost page which includes but is not limited to: the tech stack, the challenges you faced, what you've learned, etc. This is your chance to tell your story.
