About HackCWRU

HackCWRU brings together the brightest and most creative students to promote unrestricted technological innovation.

Hosted at Case Western Reserve University, over 350 students will spend 24 hours bringing their imagination into the real world. Attendees will work with peers and mentors to create projects in one of six project tracks. Stay tuned for more on our track system!

Don't be intimidated, however. You don't have to know what you're doing to attend. If you are new to hackathons, we look forward to introducing you to a world of creation.

Lastly, at HackCWRU we abide by and enforce MLH's Code of Conduct.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can attend?

Anyone currently enrolled in a high school, undergraduate, or graduate program can attend.

What if I don't have a lot of experience?

First and foremost, hackathons are a learning experience. It wouldn't be fun if you knew exactly what to do. If you need help getting started or just can't find the source of a "new feature" we have a team of mentors at your disposal.

What if I don't have an idea or team?

There are plenty of other hackers with your same dilemma that you can join forces with. Thirty six hours is plenty of time for a couple hours of brainstorming.

Will travel be reimbursed?

Partially, depending on how many people travel from afar. We would like to fully reimburse everybody, but it is not financially possible for us. We will be setting up a reimbursement application soon and everyone who fills it out will be reimbursed a certain percentage of their travels.

How much does it cost?

Nothing. Food, drinks, power, building materials, and machine time are provided for free.

What should I bring?

Besides your computer, bring anything that you'd like to hack with or that would make your 36 hour sleepover more comfortable.
