Building a bridge to a better world!

BridgeHacks is a hackathon organized by Bay Area students with a mission to build a bridge to a better world through technology! We invite middle schoolers and high schoolers (including the high school Class of 2020) to attend our FREE 48-hour hackathon on July 17, 2020 to put their skills to the test, learn new skills, network with professionals in the industry and students that share similar interests, gain hands on experience, and explore the world of technology. There will be workshops and mentors (professionals in the tech industry) to help you along so no experience is required.
