Hackiethon 2021 will run on the 2nd- 5th April. Sign up as a complete team, or individually where you can form a team with other keen hackers to create something amazing! There will be regular mentor check-ins, workshops and guides to teach you all the skills you need and guide your team through the project ideation and creation process.
Any student (University or high school) can join Hackiethon. To be eligible for prizes,this must be your first hackathon. Read our roles on our website for more information.
