Frequently Asked Questions
What is a "hackathon"?
A hackathon is a technology-focused event where individuals and teams work on new projects in a short period of time. You can build anything you want, based on the challenges. An app, a robot, a website. The only limit is your imagination!
Do I need to know how to code?
You don’t need ANY coding experience to participate! If you do, that’s great! If you don’t, that’s also great! Students of all skill levels are encouraged to attend, even if you’ve never written a line of code. We’re very beginner friendly and are prepared to teach you everything you need to learn right here.
When & Where is Brook Codes?
Brook Codes is hosted by Springbrook High School and will be held virtually, from October 9th-10th, 2021.
Who can attend?
MCPS high school and middle-school students that are 18 and below may register for the event. Additionally, all participants must follow the Brook Codes code of conduct.
How do teams work?
You can work on a project on your own, or you can work with a team. Teams can be formed prior to the hackathon with other participants, or at the team formation event before official hacking begins. Team size cannot exceed four members.
What if I don't have a partner?
What should I bring?
You must bring a valid student or government-issued ID card for admission. Bring a laptop – don’t forget your charger! (If you don't have a laptop, don't worry! we will provide computer stations and Chromebooks for you to work on). Anything else will be provided!
