24 hour hackathon for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students!

PackHacks is a 24-hour hackathon in which students work in teams of up to 4 to develop a technical software/hardware project of their own choosing. Common projects include making an app, creating a website, or even hacking together a physical device. Not only will you have the opportunity to build something you're passionate about, but you can also learn from enthusiastic technologists. There will also be lots of workshops (machine learning, web development, etc.) at the event for both less experienced students and those looking to pick up new skills. Most importantly, the event is FREE for all students to attend! Participants will receive food, shirts, swag, and resources for their projects, and the top teams will receive PRIZES!
