Event Details

Available slots are very limited. We cannot allow in participants who are not signed up. If you sign up and find you cannot attend, please change your ticket order to allow in someone from the waiting list.
Hack the Future is an all-day party / hackathon to show you what it's like to be a hacker and see if it's for you. We won't tell you what to do. You'll be free to work on whatever you want. We'll try to keep you from getting stuck, and we'll give you a place to start (if you want one). This is a unique opportunity to learn about state of the art software, hardware design and engineering from mentors working for Bay Area startups as well as big companies like Facebook and Microsoft.

You might learn how to:

  • write your own games
  • create webpages
  • make mods for existing games like Minecraft
  • create things using a 3D printer
  • design and present a new product
  • or who knows what else!

Along with all the fun, lunch will be provided!

To Do (Hackers):

  • Bring a laptop for programming. Visit our website and install the recommended programs.
  • Bring laptop's administrator password to install programs.
  • Ask questions, try new things, and have fun!

To Do (Parents):
Check hackers in at 10 am, including bring a copy of your tickets, waiver form and the medical information sheet. Tickets are required due to limited capacity.
You can come back at 3:45 to see Lightning Talks (voluntary presentations on what hackers have been working on).

Parents are encouraged to drop participants off and let them explore independently, although you're welcome to check in on them if needed. Check out hackers at 5 pm; the library needs to close and our volunteer mentors have to stay with your child he or she is picked up. Parents please remember to sign your child out of the event! Any names which we do not have parent signatures for check-out are given a follow up by HTF volunteers to verify that your child has been picked up, so please do our volunteers a favor and save them an unnecessary call.

Parents, please don't reserve a ticket for yourself; it messes up our count and this event is meant to let your children learn on their own. :)

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, August 22!

P.S. You can attend for free by picking "donate on-site" and then just not donating. This text is hidden down here to encourage you to donate :) All the funding goes directly into our programs, and it tends to be just about exactly enough to cover the cost of the food we provide. If you'd like to support Hack the Future, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a monthly supporter. Visit our Rally Page for more information.
