Dub Hacks is a two-day, 200-participant Hackathon that is independent and unaffiliated with any school. Our goal is to bring high school students in the Bay Area together to come together and develop revolutionary ideas that could change the world. At Dub Hacks, we provide students with the resources and help that would be needed to make their ideas into a reality. Additionally, by the end of the Hackathon, students will be able to learn how to collaborate with their peers to build STEM projects, gain communication skills, and be inspired to continue doing things they love! Food, workshops, drinks, and swag will be provided to all participants for free! We want all participants to enjoy their weekend at Dub Hacks, hence, we would encourage everybody to arrive to the Hackathon with a competitive mindset.
