HackWCU is a 24 hour student hackathon hosted by the West Chester Computer Science Club. Join us and over 200 students and tech professionals for weekend full of fun, innovation, and creative problem solving. You’ll enjoy tech talks, free food, and fun activities while you build innovative and exciting projects with your fellow students.
Think of a hackathon as an invention marathon. Over the span of 1-2 days, these events bring together student programmers, designers, and more to learn, build, and share cool new technology applications. Many universities host these events annually, providing a venue for students from different schools and backgrounds to work in teams to build these platforms from scratch.
Any student above the age of 18 is welcome to attend HackWCU. If you have graduated in the last 12 months, you are still eligible to participate. After that, there’s plenty of non-student/highschool hackathons that exist for you to consider attending. Future events will work to permit highschoolers of any age.
HackWCU is a completely free event registration required! Food, drinks, and awesome swag are completely free of charge!
Saturday March 30th to Sunday March 31st , 2019 in the Business and Public Management Center
