About this event

Build Your Coding Confidence and Explore the World of STEM with TechTogether

We get it. Hackathons, coding, technology - all these things are scary as a young beginner on the outside, looking in. At PreHacks, our aim is to help high schoolers conquer these fears and ace their next hackathon. This program is designed to serve people of marginalized genders.

PreHacks is a FREE one-day virtual learnathon consisting of non-stop workshops and activities led by the TechTogether team. By the end of the program, each attendee will walk away with a basic understanding of hackathons and programming fundamentals.

Last year, 99% of attendees said they would recommend PreHacks to a friend and 81% said PreHacks increased their confidence in attending future hackathons.

Program Dates

We run PreHacks right before each TechTogether hackathon, so you can meet friends and teammates to hang out with at the hackathon the following weekend.

Each PreHacks program is run on a Saturday from 9AM to 6PM local time. You can register for one or more of the following dates.

  • 📅 Saturday, August 28th, 2021 (EST)
