Additional Information about LehighHacks:
LehighHacks is a 24-hour high energy hackathon where students come together, form teams around a problem or idea, and collaboratively use technology and data to create a unique solution from scratch — these generally take shape in the form of websites, mobile apps, and Internet of Things (IoT) innovation. Over the course of the hackathon, students learn how to work with new technologies, throw together tons of code, and hopefully find a solution to the challenge they set out to tackle. The event will be filled with food, caffeine, workshops, networking opportunities, prizes, and, you guessed it, more caffeine. As time runs out, teams demo what they’ve built to a panel of judges. Watch as students come together and use technology to transform ideas into reality.
