On Friday, April 6th, UConn will be hosting its third annual HackUConn event, a 24-hour marathon that brings UConn students and tech industry experts together. During the Hackathon, hosted at Werth Tower, students will form groups and utilize various tools, such as hacking software, 3D printers, and laser cutters, to create technological prototypes. The cool thing about HackUConn is that tech mentors will be on deck to assist teams with developing their ideas. This year, the theme for HackUConn will be Healthcare and Technology, but no previous medical, technological, or business experience is required to participate.
During the event, other than the ability to network and attend informative workshops, students will be provided with free snacks, food, and giveaways. Various grand prizes will also be up for grabs, including a top prize of $2,000.
We hope to see you there!
