Hackathons and more

Hack + Marathon = HACKATHON!

Our hackathons are meant to utilize the skill set of Cornell students in a weekend of experiential learning.  These interdisciplinary hackathons bring together students from across degrees, majors, and schools at Cornell to form diverse teams and create solutions, products, or services around a topic or theme.  A hackathon celebrates hacking in its most positive context – using minimal resources and maximum brain power to create outside-the-box solutions (“hacks”).  All our hackathons are made possible by the financial support of sponsors.
