Welcome to Waterloo’s biggest high school hackathon

Join 200+ high school students from diverse backgrounds and skills to work on innovative projects. We’ll handle all the details, like workshops and mentors – you can focus on building a cool project.

Turn ideas into reality

Build an app, game, website, robot, or anything else you can dream of. We have workshops and mentors to guide you through brainstorming, coding, troubleshooting, and pitching for your project. After 36 hours, you will pitch your project to a panel of judges and compete for $15k in prizes.

Form connections

Connect with high school students from all over Ontario. Meet industry experts and mentors in the tech community. We welcome hackers of all skill levels at JAMHacks.

Make unforgettable memories

Spend a weekend full of activities and free food, and leave with lasting memories and free swag! From scavenger hunts to spicy noodle cup challenges, we have fun activities planned throughout the weekend for you to enjoy your time outside of hacking.
