Our flagship 24 hour event is the biggest high school hackathon, or tech gathering and competition, in New England. For 24 hours, learn about new technology, talk to industry professionals, meet up with friends, and make new ones. Participate in workshops, learn from speeches, and work with experts from companies like Google and Red Hat. High school students ages 13-18 can come, regardless of experience. The event is completely free, and meals are provided for all participants. Learn more about this event below.
Anyone, aged 13-18, can come! No experience required - if you're motivated and love tech, you're welcome at MetroHacks.
The 24 hour event costs nothing! Registering and attending is free, and you get free food, t-shirts, prizes, swag and lessons.
Bring a Photo ID, laptop, charger, motivation, and great ideas! We'll take care of the rest.

Hacker Project Event Tracks
Create a hack that leverages technology to improve the way our community, society and government function. Projects that fall into this track often aim to unite different walks of society and enable users to take civic responsibility into their own hands.
Bring the doctors office into our homes! Projects on this track could utilize wearable technology for patient monitoring outside the clinic, could enable a patient to schedule a consultation with their doctor over an app, or help people live healthier lifestyles. They are typically concerned with ensuring the well being of the user, either mentally, physically, emotionally, or all three.
Build a project that would make Mother Nature proud. Projects on this track utilize technology, especially hardware, to combat some of the world's most rapidly growing environmental issues including global warming, pollution, and the energy crisis.
