About Us

NewtonHACKS hosts an online hackathon for middle and high school students who are beginner programmers. Our goal is to create awareness for gender minorities in the tech world and serve as a place for programmers to think creatively! Help us run our event by donating on our GoFundMe page.

The hackathon will take place online on August 29, 2020. We will use the conferencing application Zoom and communication service Slack for the duration of the hackathon. Register individually or as a team of 2-3 people here!
