A hackathon is a technology-focused event where individuals and teams work on new projects in a short period of time. You can build anything you want. An app, a robot, a website. The only limit is your imagination!
Hack For The People is an intercollegiate hackathon initiative designed to engage students in tackling some of the world’s largest problems like social/economic/political/environmental issues, which will be mentored by experts.
