Temple University Hackathon

This will be Temple University’s first Hackathon. Students and sponsors from around the Philadelphia area will gather in the name of STEM. Students will spend 12 hours working in teams or individually to create personal projects or compete for sponsored prizes. Sponsors will be able to provide a prize for a winning “hack”, which is a project that a team of students will work on during the hackathon. There will be multiple prizes that are presented during the closing ceremonies including company-sponsored prizes as well as CST department-funded prizes.  

Sponsors will host workshops to engage student in an educational environment. Sponsors will be able to connect and network with all students present at the event. This event will make Temple students more marketable in the job hunt, raise Temple’s standing with local tech companies, and engage with other local universities.
