It’s free, all day (12 hours), and equipped with hackable hardware (e.g. Arduino, Raspberry Pi), great prizes, tons of swag, delicious food (all meals provided!), and mentors to help you build your project.

Eligibility

High school students are eligible, with younger students accepted on a case by case basis. Email us at info@lexhack.org if you're unsure of your eligibility! 

Requirements

To be eligible for judging, your project should be your own work! A project can be made using whatever technology you like, as long as you are able to present a working demo. You may use premade general code libraries, but you will only be judged on what is created at LexHack. Contact us if you’re still unsure about what is allowed.
