What is a Hackathon?

A hackathon is a competition in which students who are interested in exploring computer science or engineering team up and build projects based around whatever they're excitd about (apps, games, robots, 3D print models). Hack Mann is a hackathon available to students with a variety of skill levels, which also means no prior knowledge or experience is needed. All participants will have access to mentors and materials, and will get to pitch to the judges towards the end of the event to potentially win prizes.
