A hackathon is an event where programmers, engineers, designers, and entrepreneurs come together to build an amazing project in 24-hours. We provide the venue and food, you bring the creativity. Be prepared to learn, build something amazing, and meet new people! All projects will be judged based on creativity, technical difficulty, and polish. You may enter in multiple award categories for a chance to win multiple prizes!

The theme for this year's hackathon is the environment, ocean conservation, sustainability, clean energy, or urban agriculture! You must use one of these themes in your projects to be eligible for prizes!
