Frequently Asked Questions

A hackathon is an programming competition where programmers work together in order to create a programmatic solution to a problem in a short amount of time.

The "hack" in hackathon doesn't actually mean infiltrating a system or computer. It's a lot simpler than that. In this context, hacking means creating a rough solution to a problem, so a hackathon would be a coding marathon where teams attempt to create a solution to a problem.

Beginners are both welcomed and encouraged. We will have workshops over the course of the hackathon that can teach you the basics of programming. Additionally, we will have a 'Beginners Only' track for you to participate in.

poolesville_hacks is completely free for all elementary, middle, and high schoolers! All you need to do is sign up.

The poolesville_hacks club is mainly for developing the hackathon. You can join if you want to help! Just email us.

Collaboration is not only allowed, it's encouraged. If you can't find a team, feel free to check out our Discord or work alone. However, we have a maximum of 4 people per team.
