Frequently asked questions

To put it simply, hackathons combine the two words: hacking and marathon. Participants will get the chance to form teams of up to 1-4 members, and bring a project idea to life! However, they only have 36 hours to accomplish this.

Students will receive mentorship, learn about new job opportunities, and get some cool swag!
