Bebaras Challenge - November 4 - 19 (3rd - 12th grade

Hi Dear CSTA teachers,

At Princeton High School we running our 3rd hackathon, hackPHS on November 2nd and 3rd. We had been fortunate to have successful leadership, hard working organizers, a terrific community to support us and mostly a fantastic population of hackers. Our success is the strongest driving force to become better at every hackathon. Better means many different things to everyone. At PHS better means grow a community who helps each other and shares their knowledge and experiences. Our goal is to nurture a network of mentors, judges and hackers who get closer at every hackathon. hackPHS wants to invite you to be part of our event. You can participate as a mentor, judge, chaperon or spectators. Please think of PHS a small building with a big heart!

hacPHS like any other hackathon will have free food and drinks, desserts, sleeping rooms, workshops, team building activities, chess and Rubik's cubes tournaments, CTF competition and awards for multiple categories. The culture behind these hackathons is rapidly growing. This is an opportunity for you and your students to enjoy the richness of this unievent.

Please contact me if you are interested on joining us!
