hillsHacks was born with a mission: to show that computer science is something anyone can learn. It's more than memorizing technical jargon and stuffing code into machines. CS is for innovators, creators, problem solvers, artists, and you.
Rather than leave you alone expecting a full-fledged product launch at the end of the day, we'll guide you through the learning process with workshops from Watchung Hills alumni. Plus, we'll provide you one-on-one mentorship and an opportunity to listen in and ask questions about tech during our Panel Q&A session. Deviating from the traditional hackathon, there will be a no-code design challenge, with a greater emphasis on ideas and how technology can be used for good. Participants can win generous cash prizes, too!This is the sixth iteration of hillsHacks, Watchung Hills' premier hackathon open to students grades 7 through 12.
