The Tri-Co Hackathon brings students from Haverford, Swarthmore, and Bryn Mawr together in a collaborative learning environment to engage with digital technology. Teams of 2-5 students have 24 hours to ideate and create a deliverable project that answers a specific problem. The weekend begins on a Friday with students forming teams and discussing project ideas. They have until 6:00 pm on Saturday to finalize their projects before they present to a panel of judges for a chance to win prizes. The Hackathon provides workshops for students with varying computer programming experience to learn skills in interface design, machine learning, and geographic information systems (GIS).
