HackExeter is organized and run by the computing club at Phillips Exeter Academy.  Participating middle and high school students will be able to put together their own, fully-operational project with guidance from members of the Exeter Computing Club. Also, HackExeter is a great way to meet other curious and creative hackers.

Although this hackathon happens overnight, we encourage participants to get some rest while working on their project.  




This hackathon welcomes everyone in middle or high school, regardless of previous computer science experience.  Participants must speak English.  Individuals will be placed in teams (upon their request) if they register individually.  


All project submissions should be in English. If projects require some special framework to be viewed (e.g. Unity), there should be clear instructions in the README that detail how to run the project.
