Frequently Asked Questions

A hackathon is a 24 hour long event where students from different disciplines come together in small teams to work on real projects. The purpose of a hackathon is to have students learn about idea development and product design by being provided resources like hardware, workshops, and mentors. Hackathons are ultimately a collaborative space where creativity is encouraged and self-confidence can be obtained through hands on learning.

CUhackit will be held in the Watt Family Innovation Center at Clemson University. You can expect a large commonspace for announcements and community hacking, medium rooms for workshops, individual rooms for team concentration, and a separate area for sleep. We will also feature the Clemson Makerspace and the Immersive Space.

If you attend Clemson University and are interested in making and/or learning something awesome, CUhackit is for you! This event is specifically designed to be a great experience for students at any level.

Bring comfy clothes, toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, etc.), your laptop, its charger, and yourself.
