When and where is Hack_NCState?
This year Hack_NCState will be hosted on NCSU's Centennial Campus! The event will be held in both Duke Energy Hall at Hunt Library and Engineering Building 2.
Do I need prior experience?
No experience, no problem. We'll be having workshops on making
apps and working on hardware throughout the event, and a
hackathon is a great environment to focus on learning how to
code for an uninterrupted, 24-hour period.
Who can participate?
Hack_NCState is open to both high school and university
students. High school students will have special tracks just for
them and can join the college tracks if they choose. However,
college students cannot participate in tracks just for

and Competitive Programming.

How much does the event cost?
$0 - Hack_NCState is 100% free for everyone to attend!
How does the competition work?
Teams of up to 4 will work together to code or build a project
and present it to the judges. This project can be or do
anything; there are no constraints on what teams are allowed to
develop. The judges will then select the best overall. Every
project must be fully completed at the hackathon - no outside
work/help is permitted.
What do I get?
Participants will receive t-shirts and "swag" at the event. Students also get the valuable experience of
working on projects together and the opportunity to take
workshops which teach practical computer science skills.
Does Hack_NCState offer travel reimbursement?
No, hackers will need to provide their own forms of
transportation to and from the event.
Can I use old code?
You may use all the publicly available code and APIs that you
want, but the code you will be judged on at the end of the
hackathon must be new.
What are the rules?
We are an MLH member event and expect all participants to
follow the MLH
Code of Conduct.
