Come together with friends and other students, meet new people, strengthen your design and development skills, and connect with companies eager to identify talent and see what you can make… all within one weekend.  This hackathon will strengthen your resume, let you apply what you’re doing in the classroom into real-world scenarios, and let you earn valuable cash, prizes, and awards!

Each industry sponsor will present challenges related to their thread of industry.  Multiple challenges are possible for each sponsor.  In each of these challenges, students will be chosen to form teams to solve these challenges presenting the best of our students in Computer Science, Information Technology, Software Engineering and Game Development.  Many different skillsets on every team are desired for the best results for our industry leaders.
