Participate for prizes in one of three tracks!

Hack3 is a fun, 24 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.
In the palm of your hands, you hold a computer a thousand times faster than the Apollo Guidance Computer. Yet, this power remains mostly untapped. Hack3 aims to change that. We want you to use technology for good, preserving privacy and ethics, unlike big tech companies like Google and Facebook.
We need to nurture a new generation of 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.

A hackathon is a 24 hour long event where teams of people come together to design and build something involving a novel use of technology, usually centered around some theme.
High school students with an interest in technology or programming.
Your laptop, charger and a sleeping bag. We'll provide everything else!
There will be a separate room for sleeping, and meals for the weekend (including snacks and drinks) will be provided free of charge!
No experience is needed! Anyone with an interest in the field can come and participate.
We encourage you to form a team prior to the event itself. However, it is possible to find a team at the event or even take on the challenge on your own.
Up to 4.
Yes! There are prizes for first, second and third place for each of the three tracks, but you can only participate in one track.
You will present your final product to a panel of judges who will determine winners based on creativity, how technically challenging it was to create, and how much it fits the theme.
Unfortunately, we cannot directly provide travel reimbursement for our participants at this time, but you can apply for Execute Big's Travel Grant, so you can join us without having to pay for travel!
