StuyHacks is a student-run hackathon taking place in the heart of Manhattan. We seek to expose as many high school and middle school students as possible to the creativity and innovation that technology brings. We want to help trailblaze a new generation of diversity and enthusiasm for invention. Come join our movement. Get ready, get set, get hacking!
