About the challenge

Hey hacker! Join us for our hackathon, poolesville_hacks 2! Wait, don't go! I know what you're thinking, we don't break into banks. Hacking is actually used as a term referring to a rough solution to a problem, so our super chill competition refers to a bunch of teams creating rough solutions to problems relating to a certain topic.

Over the course of a day, you'll spend time creating (or learning how to create) an awesome project, making a ton of friends, enjoying free food, and more!



  • Built anything that relates to the three topics


  • Description of project, add information that you think would be helpful for the judges :)
