QuHacks is a day-long hackathon by students, for students. Join us for a day of creation, innovation, and fun with fellow middle and high schoolers interested in coding. From seasoned coding veterans to first-time programmers, all are welcome to join.
Discover your ability to create change by developing technology to solve real-world problems, attend workshops, and meet some new friends. We can't wait to see you there!

A hackathon is a coding marathon - it's like a real-time programming fair where students develop an idea and bring it to life through code. A project could be a game, website, app, robot, Arduino project, whatever! If you enjoy programming or technology in general, hackathons are great places to meet friendly, like-minded people.
No, you don't! Even if you aren't able to code beforehand, you can attend workshops, learn some code, and still submit a project.
Participation is limited to students currently enrolled in high school and middle school students above the age of 13. If you have already graduated high school but would still like to attend the event, please consider volunteering or mentoring for the event! Send us an email at email@example.com for more information on contributing to QuHacks.
No problem! Many participants arrive without a team, and you can meet and work with new people. You can also choose to work alone. The limit is 4 people per team.
Nothing! We'll be providing meals, snacks, and swag completely free of charge, thanks to our awesome sponsors. If you're interested in becoming a sponsor, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We recommend that you bring a laptop (One per team is fine). Laptops aren't required, but it won't be easy to code on lined paper.
Anyone caught working on past projects will be forced to sit in the corner and wear the dunce hat. Seriously though, don't be that one guy.
If you are attending alone, don't worry! We can help you form a group based on your interests or you can fly solo, although working with a team is encouraged.
At some point, Freddy had a cheesy description here. However, we can't seem to decide what Freddy is, so we'll just say he's that one duck you keep seeing around incomplete parts of this website.
