FAQ

What is Los Altos Hacks?

Los Altos Hacks is a high school hackathon—a 24-hour programming event where students work in teams to make hardware and software projects. This year, we aim to have around 350 attendees with a 1:1 gender ratio.

Who can participate?

Any high school student can participate! If you have graduated from high school, you can apply to be a mentor. If you are in middle school, you may be able to participate; please contact us at info@losaltoshacks.com for more information.

How do I form or join a team?

There will be a session at the beginning of the hackathon for you to meet others and form teams. We encourage you to come and meet new people! Each team may have a maximum of four people.

Does this cost money?

No! Los Altos Hacks is free for all participants—food, swag, and other costs are covered. We even provide travel reimbursement for select people. Check out our other question about that below!

What if I can't code?

No problem! Experience isn't required to attend. In addition, we will have workshops where you can learn!

What should I bring?

Bring a valid student ID, a laptop, chargers, a reusable water bottle (we will not provide plastic bottles), and the signed waiver (preferrably signed online). Sleeping bags and toiletries are highly recommended.

What if I have dietary restrictions?

No problem! If you have dietary restrictions, simply add them to your application when you sign up, and we will accommodate for you! Additionally, each meal will have vegan, gluten free, and vegetarian options for everyone.

Is there a Code of Conduct?

Yes, there is! All attendees are required to review and abide by the MLH Code of Conduct during the event.

Do you provide travel reimbursements?

We do, but only for a limited number of people! You can apply for travel reimbursement once the application is out.
