Andover x AngelHacks 2.0
High school student? Join us and have some fun making anything you want! We'll have workshops and guides
November/December TBD, 2020
AngelHacks 2.0 will be over the course of 2 days. You'll be randomly speed-sorted into a team with students around the world (or you can bring your own team)! On top of all the awesome AngelHacks workshops, swag, and prizes, you'll also get some super cool Andover perks!
A place for everyone.
Underrepresented students are systematically discouraged from pursuing tech. Andover has unique in their emphasis on making education open for all those that want to learn. Join us in bring computer science to campus and working with students from around the world! 💛
Could I see last year's website? 👀 Yup! It's at 2019.angelhacks.org. Last year was mostly localized to Los Angeles, but this year we're expanding! (You can guess why...) You can find the recap video on youtube, here.
Why does it say Andover? 🎓 Andover Hack Club has partnered with AngelHacks to run this event! Our current global website is at angelhacks.org, which you can check out! If you're interested in helping out, email us!
How much does it cost? 💸 Nothing! Registration and attendance are 100% free, with meals, drinks, swag, & workshops included. We'll even have prizes for the top scoring teams/individuals!
Who can participate? 🔭 Any current student grades 6–12. If you’re under/over that age, email us & we’ll see what we can do. And if you're interested in mentoring or helping out, hit us up too!
Hacking‽ Is that safe? 👨🏿💻 No, we’re not “hacking” servers. The word is being constructively redefined for coding—apps, games, websites. It’s safe, supervised, & entirely educational. Now go look somewhere else, RSA.
What can I make? 🤖 Anything! A website, app, game, hardware hack, you name it. Since this is not quite a hackathon, per se, you could also submit videos, artwork, fan compilatons (of BDG), writing, or whatever else you'd like!
What if I’m new to coding? 👾 At AngelHacks, complete beginners are not only welcome, but expected! Learn as you go with our intro workshops & mentors.
Do I need a team? 👨👧👧 Nope! You’ll have an opportunity to meet fellow hackers and make teams of up to 4—find some new friends, bring yours, or work alone.
What should I bring? 🧳 Plan to bring a student ID, computer (any kind), chargers, anything for your hack (e.g. hardware), and enthusiasm! We'll provide snacks and meals, so you don't have to worry about that!
Who runs this? Is it supervised? 👨🏫 We’re independently-organized by high schoolers, mostly from Ad Astra Hack Club & Andover Hack Club, sponsored via a nonprofit called Hack Club. It’s fully supervised with adult mentors & chaperones.
