Hacktech, Caltechโ€™s annual hackathon!


Hacktech will run April 19-21 this year, marking our 10th iteration. It is in a hybrid format, so students can compete virtually or in-person. There is no registration fee, so everyone interested is welcome. This year, Hacktechโ€™s theme is social good. They recently tripled their prize pool to $30,000 USD, with exciting prizes like 4K UHD 70" TVs, high end mechanical keyboards, and airpods. Attendees will also have the opportunity to chat with recruiters from our tech sponsors, including Activision, DRW, and Cubist Systematic Strategies!
