Become a Hacker for a Day

Hack Exeter is a one-day Hackathon hosted at Phillips Exeter Academy for Middle and High School students with any level of programming experience! Participants will have a day to create a project inspired by the contest’s theme. Prizes will be awarded to the top three projects along with a developer’s prize.
