BigRed//Hacks is the oldest student-run, large-scale hackathon at Cornell University.
Across three days, students from all across the US will gather to build the coolest and most innovative projects, meet amazing people, and win some prizes along the way!
This year, BigRed//Hacks seeks innovation in education. This will mean something different to every person. Perhaps, this means transforming the classroom, which has looked relatively the same for the past 100 years, into a dynamic experience for the next generation with technologies as reactive as students. To others, this will mean using the wide reach of the internet to ensure education is truly the great equalizer for the underrepresented, the quiet, and the forgotten. To you, this should mean something special; the experiences we live through, the opportunities we take, and the people who touch our lives and shape who we are. Education happens both within and without the classroom, and convention should not limit what you decide to build. We want you to learn and show others how to learn. We want you to speak with your audience and be spoken to. Most of all, here at BigRed//Hacks, we want you to be empowered and empower others.
* We encourage all developers regardless of technical ability or hackathon experience to apply. Admission and food is free for all hackers.
