    We are inviting student hackers to join us for a frenzied 24 hours of designing, coding and making. Whether this will be your first hackathon or your 20th come join us and build something amazing!

Not sure what a hackathon is?

A hackathon is where teams of up to 4 people work together to build something over 24 hours. Sponsors present themes for which prizes will be awarded and at the end of the 24 hours where teams present their work to the judges.

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is an invention marathon. Students come together to build cool software & hardware hacks over 24-48 hours. It’s very beginner friendly.

Nothing! Attending a hackathon is free! 😁
