What is a Hackathon?
A hackathon is an event where students individually or collaboratively create innovative solutions with technology, often using hardware, software, or both! Students present and share their ideas with other participants and can be awarded with prizes for their work. In addition, due to many workshops and experienced mentors, a hackathon is a great learning opportunity and experience. Overall, hackathons are an excellent event for any student with an interest in computer science and programming to attend, no matter the skill level.
An idea is the foundation of any hack. Be creative!
For 36 straight hours, you have the ability to create, tune, and refine your ideas
You have the opportunity to exhibit and share what you've made to the judges and the community
There will be several workshops taking place during this hackathon, which are amazing ways to pick up a new skill/langauge.

What can I win?Prizes are TBA but we promise they will be amazing.
