April 6th-7th @ Syracuse University


This April 6th-7th, Syracuse University will welcome back it’s student-run hackathon – CuseHacks. College students around the northeast region are invited to spend 24 hours hacking to build cool and innovative applications, websites, and hardware projects.

You do not need to know how to code to participate. Designers, Artists, Entrepreneurs, Engineers, and anyone interested in creating are encouraged to participate. We are dedicated to facilitating a welcoming environment for everyone, particularly beginners. Mentors and volunteers will be there to help you by answering questions, leading fun workshops, and guiding you on your hack.

It will be fun. Throughout the weekend, you can use your imagination to make anything you want with the help of your amazing peers and impressive mentors. There will be games, food, and swag! Build something or break something. CuseHacks just wants you to have a great experience meeting new people, working with friends, and gaining new skills, learning about the possibilities of technology.


What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is an invention marathon. Students come together to build cool software & hardware hacks over 24-48 hours. It’s very beginner friendly. CuseHacks is not your typical hackathon. We encourage students with any level of experience to sign up. By including the participation of middle school and high school students, we are focused on providing a more welcoming environment to introduce the younger generation to tech culture.

How much does it cost?

Nothing. Attending a hackathon is free, and we will provide meals, snacks, and swag throughout the event.

Who can participate?

All current college, high school, and middle school students are invited to participate. We will be capping attendance, so please register ASAP!

Will there be travel reimbursement?

We can not ensure travel reimbursements right now, but it may be a possibility. Please email for more information.

What if I don't have coding or hackathon experience?

Beginners are especially encouraged to come! You do not need previous hackathon/coding experience or a technology background. CuseHacks is meant to be a comfortable learning experience for everyone. Also, there will be workshops and mentors available throughout the event that can help you get started.

How do teams work?

Each team can have up to as many members as you want. Typically teams run from 3-4 members. You can come with your friends or you can form a team at the event. There will be team forming activities at the beginning of the hackathon for anybody interested. You can also work alone if you want.

Where is the event?

The event location is to be determined at Syracuse University.
