Overview

Hacking is building things that you always wanted to have but no one has built it yet. It's to come up with an amazing idea and work tirelessly on it. It is to fail, fail again and fail better. Try out new things and learn while doing that. It's to work together, collaborate and build things that are innovative. It is to be a better programmer.

With that spirit, TeenHacks℠ is conducting a hackathon - TeenHacks℠ and invites all developers and hackathon enthusiasts to participate in an interesting and engaging hackathon.

TeenHacks℠ is a charity high school civic hackathon by TeenHacks, an organization of teens in technology founded by Zachary Thomas Abraham that will gather the innovators of tomorrow and make their ideas for a better community a reality. For 12 hours, learn about new technology, talk to industry professionals, meet up with friends, and make new ones. Participate in workshops, learn from speeches, and work with mentors from companies. The event is completely free! TeenHacks℠ is a high school hackathon in the Bay Area for students by students for Teens in Technology. We will have free food, swag, goodies, and more! Our goal is to support diversity, innovation, and technology among high school students
