FAQs

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is a coding marathon event where people come together to create apps, games, and solutions to address a common real-world problem. The problem can be big or small, serious or comedic!

Do we actually hack?

No, that's not what we mean by "hack"! Hacking is a general term for finding creative solutions with code to solve problems we see around us.

Am I elligible to participate?

If 18 and under, and a high school student, yes!! If you're younger, shoot us an email at [email protected].

Does it cost anything?

Nope! Everything is free. We'll provide meals, snacks, and beverages on-site, as well as swag, prizes, and fun activities.

What do I need to bring?

Bring your laptop, chargers, toiletries, sleeping bags/pillows/blankets, and an open mind! Also, you can optionally bring some hardware or other materials for your project.

What are the sleeping arrangements?

There will be designated gender-separated rooms for sleeping with over-night supervision. Make sure to bring something to sleep on! (sleeping bag, pillows, blankets, etc.)

I'm new to coding. Can I join?

Yes!! The focus of BH6 is to learn new things and have fun. We'll have mentors and workshops covering a bunch of fascinating topics to help you get started.
