Super Hack: San Diego's First High-School Hackathon

Super Hack is San Diego's First High School Hackathon.

 

San Diego, America's finest city, is faced with an issue. Despite the plethora of educational opportunities and creative minds, students aren't actively encouraged to "make." While theory is in our future, practicality must not be overlooked, and the art of practicality is derived through events such as hackathons. In lieu of this demand, Super Hack was started with one goal and one goal only in mind: create an event revolving around making.

 

After all, coding is a superpower. While we can't quite become Batman nor Superman, our symbiotic connection to the virtual world enables us to create smarter Spotify playlists, high-energy quantum computers, and decentralized communication algorithms that can power the next generation of digital surfers.

 

It's not just us, it's a movement. So join us in San Diego, where the surf is high and the receding beach awaits innovation.
