TechTogether's Largest Hackathon

Let’s admit, 2020 has been a YEAR. We have faced many social, emotional, and environmental challenges this year and it’s time we start writing our future to ignite change. The theme Dear Future Me is about reflecting on our past and acting on our future.

On the weekend of our hackathon, brainstorm and build a project that will impact your future. This project can be a hack to benefit your personal, social, and environmental wellness.




Challenges

Environmental


“Future me, I want to recycle more in hopes to reduce my carbon footprint.” Create a hack to spread awareness about climate change! The Environmental track emphasizes how our actions impact the world as individuals and global citizens.

Social


“Future me, I want to empower and support the people around me.” The Social track is focused on helping your community. Projects can be focused on addressing the current Black Lives Matter movement, educating your peers, helping the elderly community.

Personal


“Future me, I want to be confident in my own skin and abilities.” The Personal track is about creating a hack that will benefit YOU! Whether this is a health and wellness app, a productivity website, or a robot to help you around the house, the possibilities are endless.
