2019 Fashion/Tech Hackathon
Hackathons are the new way to push the boundaries of what you know and learn what you don't. They provide an environment to learn, explore and engage to complete a project with a set amount of time. Students spend 36 hours building a project of their choice, such an app or a garment, while getting support from mentors and sponsors. Workshops are held throughout the event to teach students different skills to help with their project. Participants meet companies looking to hire while getting their hands on the latest tech. Students are given the opportunity to solve problems they see in the world by utilizing fashion and technology.
