TaroHacks is an online high school and middle school hackathon with the goal of helping students learn new skills to make projects that have an impact on their communities. Although normally hackathons are daylong, in-real-life events, COVID-19 has made this difficult to do, so with this hackathon students will be able to use their skills to create something to benefit society.
Our hackathon aims to inspire more students of our generation to get involved and find an interest in technology and engineering even through this pandemic. We want to help promote teamwork, innovation, creativity, and collaboration to encourage students to create solutions to problems in our world. Because TaroHacks is an online hackathon, allowing students from all over the world and country to participate, but our team is based in Santa Clara, California.
TaroHacks will take place online from August 1st to August 8th, 2020. All of the information will be sent through email and the TaroHacks Slack to the participants during and before the hackathon. Workshops, speakers, and general meetings will be hosted through Zoom or Google Meet. Entries will be submitted through Taikai and will be judged the hours after submissions are due.
The official rules/guidelines for TaroHacks can be found here and under the "Rules" tab in Taikai. More information and details are on our Taikai site.
All resources can be found in the "Resources" tab in Taikai and will also be sent out through email. This includes guides to using Taikai, hacker resources from our sponsors, rules, mentor contact info.
