Started in 2016, MenloHacks V is the latest iteration of the MenloHacks 24-hour hackathon. Every year, more than 150 high school students come together to produce a wide array of amazing projects using the simple power of coding. Over the years, MenloHacks has always included top-notch support, workshops, and food. Our judges have included Former Apple SVP of iOS Scott Forstall and YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki. This year is very special, for MenloHacks is celebrating its 5th anniversary!
To get a sense of last year and what to expect this year, here's the summary video from MenloHacks IV:
This Year's Theme
The projects created will create new ways to get kids to engage in classrooms and encourage the young population to learn. Learning should be fun and exciting, but meaningful as well. The best projects will encompass both fun and depth into their mission statement.
Computer science and medicine are closely intertwined. Medicine works best when technology is used to speed up diagnoses or discover new ways of treating patients. The projects created should focus on increasing the accuracy of treatment or to provide a tool that will help health professionals in their day-to-day.
Our planet is facing the worst episodes of extreme weather events yet. We are already affected socially, economically and politically. Developing solutions on both the local level and the global level will be instrumental in combating this issue. Most importantly, solutions should be both environmentally friendly and economically feasible.
