What is Hack3?

Hack3 is a fun, 24-48 hour hackathon made for high school students, both new and experienced. During this time you will develop and present a project for cool prizes. Most importantly, you will learn new and useful skills that will help you on your computer science journey.

Our Goal

In the palm of their hands, students hold a computer a thousand times faster than the Apollo Guidance Computer used to land men on the moon. Yet, this incredible power remains mostly untapped. Most students use technology solely to consume, not create.

Meanwhile, instead of bringing positive change, tech companies and governments have abused these advances to eliminate consumer independence and avoid giving back to the coding community. We need to nurture a new generation of ethic-conscious and determined programmers and give them the ability to make change for good. Our aim is to provide an opportunity for aspiring leaders of the tech world to bring their own ideas to fruition and create a better world for future generations.
