HackHC: an all inclusive Hackathon hosted by the HCRHS Competitive Programming Club

HackHC is a thirty-six-hour round-the-clock Hackathon that was planned and organized by Hunterdon Central Regional High School's Competitive Programming Club. HackHC is open to anyone regardless of their age, which includes students, adults, etc. We challenge our participants to work in teams to compete in our various Hackathon Tracks, and will also be announcing a 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall. We specifically highly encourage students to create a submission which pertains to a sub-topic of Artificial Intelligence, for example Machine Learning, though this is absolutely not enforced. The presence of corporate mentors in this exciting environment provides students the guidance they need to perfect their projects while imagining their future in a STEM career.
