Want to code a crazy project?

Sandy Hacks is a San Diego hackathon scheduled for April 8th, 2023 at Ansir Cowork from 9 AM to 9 PM. Anybody aged 13-18 who loves coding, free food and fun is welcome to attend!


Soโ€”what is a hackathon? A social coding marathon! Teams of around two to four students will work together to build awesome apps, games, and websites.

Do I need to know how to code? Nope! Any student, whether they've been programming for years or have never done it at all, can attend. You could attend a workshop to learn how to build something with code!

Do I need to bring a team? Noโ€”most people won't. People with cool ideas will form teams at the start of the event!

What do I need to bring? Just a laptop and a charger.

Do I need to pay? Nope! Thanks to our sponsors, it is 100% free.

How many students will be there? Around 25.

What about hardware? Will you have Arduinos at the event? We will! (and if you make an awesome project with it, you can keep it!)
