What is Learn-A-Thon?

It's a full day of virtual workshops and AMAs on coding, STEM, internships, college applications, and more! As a participant, you're able to pick which workshops to attend.

What is Build-A-Thon?

Much like the classic Hackathon! It's a full day of hacking and learning. No experience is needed! During the Build-A-Thon, you can pick which workshops to attend.

What is Share-A-Thon?

Share and demo your creations with the rest of the community! Prizes are included

Do I need to attend every event?

About Us


Calling all programmers, designers, makers and leaders! TeenHacks LI is Long Island’s premier 24-hour high school hackathon, by students, for students. Take part in group collaboration, interesting workshops, sweet prizes, and more. Get ready to meet new people and have an amazing time. Join our community as we build the future!

Founded by Jeffrey Yu and Wesley Pergament in 2018, we bring together the brightest students across the northeast to engage in “collaborative coding.” We hope to build a hacker community here on Long Island, with an emphasis placed on innovation and entrepreneurship.
