About MenloHacks

Welcome Back Hackers.

We are back with (virtual) MenloHacks 5.1, one of the most popular in-person hackathon in the Bay Area. Started in 2016, MenloHacks 5.1 is the latest iteration of the MenloHacks 24-hour hackathon, except we're going virtual one more time. 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.

Check out our virtual hackathon that we organized on May 2020 that we partnered with PilotCity in response to COVID-19.
