Frequently Asked Questions

A hackathon is an event dedicated to gathering both aspiring and experienced computer programmers to work upon and create a product, based on a given question or theme. This key question or theme is what diversifies hackathons from one another. A typical hackathon ranges from a 24 to 72 hour event, filled to the brim with immersive workshops and guest speakers. During this time, participants use a combination of their newfound knowledge along with past experiences to come up with a product. In a hackathon, participants can decide to work in teams or individually. Finally, prizes are offered to participants with the best projects at the end of the event.

Any high school or enthusiastic middle school student can join us at TurtleHacks!

Any team can have a maximum number of four people. You can form a team before or during the event.

That's okay! TurtleHacks prioritizes learning at the same level at building and creating. With helpful mentors and live workshops, you'll be able to create any project you'd like.
