Who are we

General

ByteHacks is a student-led hackathon that will allow students to create mobile apps, 3D apps, websites, or other projects that solve real-world problems. It aims to spark an interest in technology and problem-solving within middle and high school students.

Why us?

ByteHacks has the goal of introducing technology to students, so as a sponsor, you will have the opportunity to promote your company’s brand. Due to a large number of hackers participating in our hackathon, you will be able to advertise your products so that hackers may use your tools in future projects.  ByteHacks will be 4 days long and will take place from July 31st to August 3rd online. We open up our hackathon to all middle and high school students of various coding levels and ages.
