Event Details

Please go to the HacKid Website to see the agenda for this year's amazing HacKid Conference.

HacKid is a new kind of conference focused on providing an interactive, hands-on experience for the entire family— kids aged 5-17 & their parents — in order to raise awareness, excitement and understanding of technology, gaming, mathematics, safety, privacy, networking, security and engineering and their impact on society and culture.  We focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) enablement.

We enjoy a fantastic mix of racial, gender and cultural diversity that reflects our community of amazing kids and we love raising the next generation of "Hackers."  By the way, “Hacking” is the word our community chooses to use to describe creative, fun and innovative ways of exploring problem solving.  

The idea for the conference revolves around providing an interactive, hands-on experience for kids and their parents which includes things like:

  • Staying Safe Online
  • Dealing with CyberBullies
  • Robotics
  • Online gaming safety
  • Building Medieval Trebuchets
  • Interactive robot building
  • How the Internet works
  • Food Hacking
  • Computerized Lego Derby racing
  • Manipulating hardware and software for fun
  • Low-impact martial arts/self-defense & anti-bullying techniques
  • 3D Printing
  • Learning to program in Scratch & JavaScript
  • …and much more!

The format of our conference is really interesting. Unlike a traditional conference where a call for papers is issued, or a completely unstructured “un-conference,” we mix advisory board recommendations with a crowd-sourced concept based on interesting submissions.

If you have additional ideas for cool things to do, let us know on Twitter via @HacKidCon or email:

UPDATE: April 13, 2014 - We're less than a week away from HacKid 2014 in San Jose.  We hope that you are excited as we are!

A couple of important updates:

  1. LUNCH WILL NOW BE PROVIDED on both days.  We will have a box lunch and bottled water.  We will try and accomodate everyone's general dietary needs with a selection including some vegan and, hopefully, Gluten free options.  If you have dietary requirements, send email to and we'll try our best to help -- if you have special needs, please plan accordingly.
  2. Don't forget the special reserved IMAX showing at 5-6pm on SATURDAY night!  We are zeroing in on the selection, but it will be just for us
  3. We'd like to thank Kaspersky Labs who has graciously signed on as a PLATINUM sponsor allowing us to get more supplies and an anonymous sponsor who will provide for the funding of our lunches both days.

Look for an updated email if you're already signed up!

See you soon!
