We are back again with virtual MenloHacks VI, one of the most popular in-person hackathon in the Bay Area. Started in 2016, MenloHacks VI is the latest iteration of the MenloHacks 24-hour hackathon. Every year, more than 250 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.

|Submissions in the Human health track will aim to solve problems in areas such as healthcare, medicine, athletics, and much more that will help further our understanding of and/or provide solutions for health-related issues.
|The purpose of the Education track is to focus on how to improve the reach of education to students around the world, from students old to young. Especially as distance learning and online education become more popular, we look forward to seeing submissions that aim to innovate our current educational systems, such as how we approach equity in education, how we can make remote learning more interactive, and how we can address the disparity in access to educational resources.
|Sustainability looks to protect our natural environment, human and ecological health while driving innovation. Projects in this tract seek to focus on how to make our lives more sustainable.

MenloHacks is a weekend-long event where hundreds of students from around the world work together to create or "hack" innovative new software and/or hardware projects.
There are three tracks, or impact areas, that we’ve developed to specifically hack in: health, education, and sustainability. The top project in each track will be awarded a prize.
None at all. We'll be hosting beginner workshops where you start learning programming and everything you want to build. There will also be beginner prizes available.
No! However, we strongly encourage those who are interested in one of the three tracks to work on them.
Anyone currently in high school is eligible to apply.
You can attend all our events without submitting a project, but you must submit one to receive swag or a prize!
A sum total of $0.00. Our goal is to let you hack worry free.
All you need is your computer and Discord (where the virtual hackathon will be taking place) installed. It's as simple as that.
Your team can have up to 4 people. You can select teammates when you register, or you can form them during the actual event!
We'll have team formation events geared towards helping you find people to work with. Obviously, if you have friends going to the event, you are welcome to just team up with them; however, it is often more fun to code with new people.
Yes, there is. Nothing too out of the ordinary though. Generally, be nice to others. If you want the full guide, we are using the MLH code of conduct which can be found here.
