Summary Sentence: Come and create technological solutions for social good... win prizes while you are at it!

Full Summary: We must continue to ask ourselves what challenges mankind faces and how can technology help. Come spend 24 hours and create and brainstorm a unique, innovative, and progressive project that delivers a positive effect on your community.    

Join us for a  24-hour collegiate hackathon sponsored by  the College of Computing and our loyal Corporate Affiliate Partners. We believe technology has the power to spark positive change in our communities and our mission is to empower and enrich humanity. Our goal is to bridge the gap between technology and social advocacy in hopes to inspire individuals to build creative tools that can be used to tackle society's biggest issues. The scale is up to you.  Big or small solutions. Individual or Global Needs.  Ex: tracking $$ spent on coffee per month or creating an application for improved vehicle control and safety. Come, dive in, and make the most incredible things you can imagine alongside fellow creators. You take care of building. We’ll take care of you.
