METROHACKS - 200+ Hacks Come Alive On May 21st And 22nd In Boston

Technology is all around us in today’s modern society. From within our homes to outer space, computers, robots, machines, and gadgets have penetrated every aspect of our lives. Behind all this technology are computer scientists, who somehow make all our apps and websites work. I used to think about computer science as just about writing lines and lines of commands in a strange language I didn’t understand. However, the more I learned, the more I realized that computer science is about innovating, setting trends, trying to see into the future, and using logic and reasoning to make the world more efficient, connected, and accessible to everyone.

This is why a group of friends and I, from my school, decided to bring a 24-hour hackathon, called MetroHacks, to the Massachusetts area. We believe that every high schooler should have the ability to pursue and cultivate their passion for computer science. This hackathon will bring together students from all different corners of New England, united by a passion for building and innovating, to try new things and to challenge themselves.

High school students can apply, form teams, attend informational workshops, and create an app or project over the course of 24 hours that will be judged by a panel of highly qualified judges and win thousands of dollars worth of cool prizes. So far, we have been sponsored by Microsoft, Thalmic Labs, Dash, Z-Tech, and MIT Launch.

 We hope everyone will join us in promoting a fun, creative, and fresh perspective of computer science in the New England region! The MetroHacks team wants to bring a new sense of purpose to the traditional high school hackathon.

The hackathon will take place on May 21st-22nd at One Cambridge Center, Microsoft New England’s headquarters. We will provide food and registration is completely free online, at http://metrohacks.co.

If you have any questions, please contact info@metrohacks.co. See you there!
