Millibit Hacks is an all-day hackathon for high school students in which 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 will occur on February 23rd at the Microsoft Reactor in San Francisco. It will be a one day event, and we will post a detailed schedule here as the event nears.
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. A waiver of liability will be sent out soon.
What is the XRedu Challenge?
The XRedu Challenge is teaming up with Millibit hacks! Build solutions to some of the most common problems faced in education using AR, VR, or MR technologies to compete as a part of the XRedu Challenge! We’ll provide you with the mentors, speakers, and tutorials.
Is There Food?
Lunch and dinner will be provided!
Is There Supervision?
There will be adult supervision for the entire event.
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.
