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 from June 3rd - 5th, 2022. Any student from anywhere can participate in the event remotely. Students can choose to build a solution to any problem in their community or the world at large. Projects will be submitted at the end in the form of a 3-minute video demo which will be judged by a panel of top founders/venture capitalists. No programming experience is needed and we will help with team forming.
