A hackathon is a event where students collaborate to create their own hardware or software product. Throughout the event they can go to great workshops, enjoy free food and drinks, and have fun! At the end of the competition students will pitch their product idea to the judges and be assessed based off mutiple factors. The top products will be awarded cool prizes!
Teams can consist of up to four members, two at minimum. We highly suggest that you work with a larger group as more heads are better than less!
All attendees should bring laptops, charging cables, and sleeping bags. Don't worry about any food or drinks, we will have delicious, high-quality meals being served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We will also have plenty of free snacks!
All products will be judged out of multiple categories including creativity, design, and viablility as a product. The judges will also award extra points for any products they feel deserve it.
Of course! We will have plenty of workshops and activities to help you get started in designing your first product! We will also have mentors who will be happy to help you with anything you need!
Nothing! Thanks to our wonderful sponsors and partners, HorizonHacks is completely free! So leave your wallet behind, and bring your coding skills with you!
