Event description


Coders, designers, students and entrepreneurs alike! Grab your computer and your thinking caps and get ready for Hackathon 2019. In 24 hours you’ll take data and collaborate to create something that addresses behavioral or mental health. Then you’ll get to present your project to a panel of judges. Space is limited to 40 participants so register early!

Who can participate:

No need to be a master techie, but some knowledge of coding, programming, design or data is needed. This is a great opportunity for students and young hackers to get experience or tech veterans to have some fun.
