Calling all programmers, designers, makers and leaders! TeenHacks LI is Long Island’s premier high school hackathon. Take part in group collaboration, interesting workshops, sweet prizes, and more. Get ready to meet new people and have an amazing time. Join us as we build the future!
TeenHacks LI is Long Island’s premier high school 24-hour hackathon, by students, for students. Founded by Jeffrey Yu and Wesley Pergament, we are all about bringing together the brightest students across the tri-state area to engage in “collaborative coding.” We hope to build a hacker community here on Long Island, with an emphasis placed on innovation and entrepreneurship.
It's a place where programmers, engineers, designers, and entrepreneurs come together to build an awesome project in 24-hours. We provide the venue and food, you bring the creativity. Get ready to learn, build something cool, and meet new people. Check out this article by Dave Fontenot to learn more! What is a Hackathon?
Do not worry. TeenHacks LI encourages students of all levels to come! In addition, we will have workshops throughout the hackathon as well as mentors available to answer any of your questions.
All high school students are welcome to attend. If you are older or younger and still want to participate as a hacker, shoot us an email. If you're older, we welcome you to sign-up as a mentor!
TeenHacks LI is completely free, thanks to our generous sponsors! This will include food, swag, and awesome prizes.
In the beginning, we’ll have a team formation session to make sure you’re not alone. You can have teams as large or small as you want, but only teams of 2-4 will be eligible for prizes.
You should bring your student ID, laptop, phone, chargers, sleeping bag, deoderant, toothbrush, as well as any hardware or materials you may need for your project. Nothing hazardous or illegal.
We encourage everyone to sleep for at least a portion of the night. You can bring a sleeping bag and pillow. We will have a secure quiet room for those who want some shut eye.
