The Squad

We are a group of sleep deprived high school students that are passionate about technology and community. Our love for technology and community drives us to organize these 12 hour hackathon that brings together people of all ages, races, genders, nationalities and beliefs to connect and create great things. Inside the heart of a hackathon lies innovation and creativity; for it is a home where great minds and visionaries assemble together to give birth to radical solutions and inventions. In the past we had hosted 5 successful hackathons and with local hack day 2015, we plan to continue this success.
