Hack-Atari is a free, 12 hour hackathon for high school students that is run entirely by students and mentors from FRC Team 2485. In the time provided, students design, program, and debug a project that centers around a theme provided at the beginning of the day using any software and available hardware they wish.
Students compete in groups of 2-5 that are either preformed or formed the day of the competition with new students from other schools. At the end of the day, we award prizes for the four best projects which are judged on a variety of factors. You may not use any pre-existing codebases, all competition code should be generated the day of the competition itself. Hack-Atari will take place on December 16th.
Come back fall of 2018 for the next hackathon!
