Don't worry, we are not actually hacking in the sense of the word "hacking!"
A hackathon is a place for creators to come together and work on a project relating to computer science and other fields of STEAM. These projects will be shared with everyone and we will all have an opportunity to appreciate the hard work and creativity put into these amazing projects.
Henry the hippo needs your help! He was last seen sobbing as he trudged away from his former habitat (destroyed by humans ofc).
Hippo Hack is a 12 hour hackathon where students of all experience levels across the Greater Boston area will congregate for a day full of collaboration, teamwork and fun! Hippo Hack is a completely free hackathon for students in grades 6-12!!
Competitors will create a project from our list of topics based off of Henry's needs, and by the end of the hacking time, the judging phase will begin and winners will be chosen by judges as well as you guys! We will offer prizes in addition to other free merchandise!

OF COURSE! We will run a number of introductory classes during the day if you are just starting out! There are plenty of projects you can make utilizing your skills to the fullest potential (and its basis doesn't have to be tech related!)
It's completely free! Participants will receive complimentary merchandise, food, and more!
4 people maximum can be in a group. You can also work in smaller groups or even solo. If you need a group, we can help you find one to work in!
Bring your computer and a charger as well as anything else, including other tech-related gear you may want, so that you can work as productively as you can. However, we will be bringing spare gear and we will be able to loan out Chromebooks if you don't own a computer or you forget to bring yours :)
Hippo Hack is for all students in grades 6-12!
