About VassarHacks

VassarHacks is a 24-hour hackathon and the perfect opportunity to meet people with a passion for technology, learn something new, and build something amazing. Whether you’re an experienced hacker or a novice, our mentors and workshops will be there to help you push the boundaries of what you know. 

This year, help the world adapt to a new normal by building something for remote work or learning and public health. 

Remote Work/Learning

Was there something about remote classes that bugged you? Or maybe you found it difficult being in the same space for both work and relaxation. Build something that can make that experience better for everyone. 

Public Health

According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report, “infectious diseases were named one of the top 10 risks in terms of impact for the next 10 years.” How might we mitigate the impact of a future pandemic? Can we do more to track and improve the health of ourselves and those around us?

SAS Data Challenge

In addition to the two main categories, you can also enter your project to the SAS Data challenge if it involves a data analysis component. Simply write up a report as is detailed in the Data Challenge section.
