The Tri-Co Hackathon brings students together from Haverford, Swarthmore, and Bryn Mawr in a collaborative learning environment to engage in innovative problem solving 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 usually takes place in November and provides workshops for students with varying computer programming experience to learn skills in interface design, machine learning, and geographic information systems (GIS).
