Fifth Baltimore Hackathon

Class Overview

Embark on a 48 hour journey as we work across two maker campuses in Station North with other innovators, creatives, thinkers and doers for a weekend full of learning and healthy competition.

Three tracks will help you direct your ideas full-steam ahead. Maybe it’s a problem that needs to be solved, an idea without the time, a skill that could help someone else, or just silly geekery, we welcome all skill levels and reasons for hanging out. Choose your own adventure for a chance to win some serious capital.

Like last year, teams have the chance to win over $10,000 in prizes!

We welcome all ages and skill levels!
