hackPHS will be held in the cafeteria of Princeton High School, located at 151 Moore St, Princeton, NJ. Limited parking will be available around the school. All dates and times are tentative, but you should plan on arriving before 10:30 AM on Saturday, November 2 and leaving sometime after 2:30 PM on Sunday, November 3.
Free food and drinks will be provided during the hackathon, including vegetarian and dairy-free options. We will also have dedicated sleeping areas for y'all to catch some Z's. Electrical outlets will be available throughout the cafeteria for all your charging needs. We will have a hardware lab, but if you need specific hardware, either email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or bring the hardware with you.
Unfortunately, this event is for high school students only. If you are no longer a high schooler and would like to help out, consider applying to be a mentor
Teams of up to 4 people are highly encouraged (though not mandatory), but even if you don't have one beforehand, hackPHS will be a great way to meet other enthusiastic people and even make new friends. No matter if you're a first time hackathon attendee and have no idea what to do (everyone was a beginner once), or are an experienced hacker who wants to give back to the community, it is a good idea to join our Facebook event. In addition to all the important announcements and information about the event, you'll be able to find others to guide you through the hackathon process and hopefully help you develop something awesome.
Apply by going to our registration link here! We will be doing admissions on a first-come first-serve basis, so apply ASAP.
hackPHS hopes to emphasize learning and collaboration more so than competition - nonetheless, there will be awesome prizes to be won for some the most interesting hacks made during the event.
While you can learn a great deal in the process of building an ambitious project in such a limited time frame, we also plan to offer introductory workshops (around 1 hour each) during the event, for those new to software and/or hardware engineering. Specific topics will include Arduino programming, iOS development, and Python, among others.
