Heard about hackathons, but don't know where to start? Then you're in the right place! Attend this casual student hackathon and we'll teach you the basics, whether you know how to code or not!

Our event is meant to be a casual environment open to anyone who is curious about coding and hackathons! It's not a competition, but a challenge for those who seek it. For more details, check out the Unlock Hacks Website!

Requirements

  • Your team will need to submit a video presenting your project/idea.
  • This video must be created during the hackathon.
