What is SchoolHacks?

After the success of last year's worldwide NuevaHacks III with over 350 students from 8 countries participating, we are thrilled to present the next evolution of NuevaHacks: SchoolHacks. We are emerging from this pandemic with a new vision: one that focuses on maintaining the global connection brought by last year’s hackathon while bringing exciting in-person elements. We are excited to announce that we are pivoting to a larger organization called SchoolHacks. In the future, SchoolHacks will be a movement of hackathons around the world, all happening at the same time and under the SchoolHacks brand. 

This year, we are excited to celebrate the launch of SchoolHacks with a remote, global hackathon in the Spring of 2022 Over the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed the world around us. Nearly every industry has been impacted by the pandemic. This year, we are focusing SchoolHacks on three timely and important themes: Education, Healthcare, and Climate Change
