Winter WonderHack is a 36-hour hackathon that takes place at Michigan Tech. Students from across the midwest come here to show their passion for making #something. As it would happen, attendees will also get to enjoy the world-famous Winter Carnival ice sculptures, along with events surrounding the MTU Career Fair!


Current students and those who have been a student within the past year are eligible. Teams may be one ot four people. All work submitted for consideration must be completed at the location and over duration of the event.


Select the categories, resources and technolgies used in your submission and upload a description of the purpose and function of you project. This may be in the form of a video, presentation, images or other media. Keep it brief - e.g. limit videos to no more than three minutes - and general. Judges will be visiting your project at the expo.
