Helyx USA Hacks is a nationwide biology-based hackathon for high school students. We combined the exciting fields of biology with computer science, and we can't wait to see what our attendees make! 

Even though the Charlotte chapter of the Helyx Initiative is hosting this hackathon, we welcome everyone from the United States to submit! 


Submissions to the hackathon are not restricted to a specific type. Anything that shows off your project is welcomed! For example, websites, apps, video demos, APK files, PPT explaining your ideas, etc. will be accepted. There are no limits, and you can submit as many materials as you think we would need to fully understand your project. 

In general, code-based projects will be judged more highly than simple ideas, but that depends from case to case. All submissions will be taken into consideration for prizes and awards though.
