At JSC Hack, teams spend the weekend working on innovative software and hardware solutions to real-world problems in a community full of mentorship.
We'll provide you with all the resources and mentors you need to work on something cool. You'll have the freedom to create a product, learn new skills or just have fun working on a project with friends.
This year’s hackathon will be hosted at The Ion with lots of workshops, events, and interactive competitions to help create an engaging atmosphere.
