This hackathon is ONLY for current and incoming TAMS students. 

HackTAMS Spring 2021 will consist of two tracks:

  • Hack
  • Design

The hack track will be for participants who are confident in their coding skills to create a project of their choice. On the other hand, the design track is for beginners/non-CS students who can pitch their idea to the judges through a simple visual, Figma project, website, etc.

Make sure to come and listen to the guest speakers we have in line for you and learn a thing or two from the workshops! We also have game night scheduled on Saturday for you guys to relax, have fun, and make this event memorable. 

To get in touch, feel free to DM any one of the CSO execs or ping us on Discord. We can't wait to "meet" each one of you! Stay safe!

Check out our website for more information about the event!
