HackKean Fall 2020
Kean University's Annual Hackathon
Join us for 12 hours online as we build apps, hardware, and more. We will provide a comfortable and enlivening atmosphere for you to build out progressive, innovative, and crazy ideas.
At HackKean, you’ll meet fellow hackers, learn new technologies, and hone your skills. We'll have free prizes, games, and more. Don’t have a team or an idea? Don’t worry! We’ll connect you with others and give you the tools to build something incredible.
Whether you're a seasoned hackathon-goer or just getting started, we’d love to see you here!

Are there any forms I need to fill out?
What's a hackathon?
It’s a grand gathering of people to make their ideas come to life. Think out of the box, try new technologies, ask questions, make mistakes, discover a new language, and have fun!
Who, When, & Where?
HackKean Fall 2020 will run for 12 hours online using Discord and it is open to all students! The event will be held on Saturday, November 21 from 9 AM to 9 PM EST.
How do I sign up?
What kind of project can I work on?
Whatever you'd like. Software, hardware, design, music, art, animation — take your pick.
Teams should be groups of up to 5 students. You can also work alone, but we encourage collaborating with the other great minds at HackKean.
Do I need to have a finished project by the end?
Your goal should be to have a finished or almost complete project by the end of the night. However, HackKean is ultimately a learning experience, so don't sweat it too much if you can't finish. We want you to experiment and learn!
I haven't been to a hackthon before...?
That’s absolutely fine! We encourage beginners to join us. Please feel free to email us if you've got any questions not answered here.
What should I bring?
Whatever you need to create. Hardware, computers, and whatever else.
What shouldn't I bring?
A bad attitude. Come with an open mind & get ready to build.
I'm not a college student. Can I participate?
We're open to high school students! In the industry? If you're interested in being a mentor, please reach out..
How can I get in touch?
If you have a question not answered here or just want to reach out, shoot us an email.
12 hours of creativity.
Let there be hacking!
