WHAT IS MONTYHACKS?
MontyHacks is a 12-hour hackathon at Montgomery High School, happening on April 21st, 2018. It aims to spread a passion for computer science to high school students in the tri-state area.
MontyHacks II fully embraces our mission of promoting “hacking for social good” with its new theme, “Full Circle.” Participants are encouraged to consider the good of their own communities—their schools, towns, countries, and world at large—as they learn and build projects throughout the day. We believe that it is important for innovative new technologies to not exist in a void, but rather for the benefit of the societies around them. We’d also like to see participants recognize and aim to give back to the people and organizations that have shaped their growth as students and human beings. It is our hope that apps are developed at MontyHacks II such as a website for a local animal shelters, a mobile app encouraging usage of solar energy, etc. Prize categories will be in line with our theme as well.
