Millibit Hacks is a 24 hour long, hackathon for high school students where anyone can work together on an application, learn about STEM, and have fun!
What Is A Hackathon?
A Hackathon is a social coding event that brings high schoolers interested in technology together to build apps and win prizes!
When and Where is it?
Millibit Hacks is currently going through major changes (as of September, 2018), so the date and venue is currently TBD. The event will be held in the Bay Area.
What To Bring?
Bring a laptop, Student ID, chargers, phone, blanket/sleeping bag, and any other supplies you will need to (a) build your hack or (b) have a great time at the event. You will also need to bring a signed copy of Waiver of Liability.
Is There Supervision?
There will be adult supervision for the entire event. Doors will be closed and locked at 9 PM on Saturday and reopened at 10 AM on Sunday.
Do I Need a Team?
No, you don’t! You can hack solo or form a team of up to five total people.
Who Can Attend?
Any high school student can compete in this hackathon! No programming experience is needed prior to attending the event—a hackathon is a great way to learn how to code from your peers! If you are older than a high schooler, you can still signup to be a volunteer or mentor by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is there a Theme?
Yes! The theme of Millibit Hacks is to solve a real-world problem through an app, website, or any kind of software.
What languages can we code in?
You may use any language you like to create an app that can solve a real-world problem.
