What is AtomHacks?

AtomHacks is a 12-hour long hackathon held at the Bronx High School of Science where high school students from all different skill levels can come together to develop innovative software and hardware projects from scratch.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is a short event focused on creating projects that typically have something to do with computer engineering or computer science. Aside from the amazing experience, they are often viewed as learning events, as you can take a lot away from attending one, and as gatherings, as you can meet many people with the same interests.

Who can attend?

Students who are currently enrolled at Bronx Science are allowed to attend the hackathon.

Mentors are always appreciated at AtomHacks! We are looking for knowledgable and passionate people to help our participants "inquire, discover, create."

When is AtomHacks?

This year, AtomHacks will take place on Saturday, March 30 from 8:30 AM to 8:30 PM. However, you do not need to stay all 12 hours. Please sign up before 3:00 PM on Friday, March 29th!

Can I start working before the hackathon?

To keep the competition fair, all code used in your project must be written at the hackathon. However, you are allowed to start brainstorming your project before the event begins.

How large can my team be?

Teams may not have more than 5 members. Students are also welcome to work solo.

What can I create?

You can create anything you want, as long as your hack does not violate the code of conduct.

I have another question.
