Hack&&Make serves to promote the attendance of hackathons as well as maker culture. Hackathons, a combination of “hack” and “marathon”, are a category of events where a small team of students is given a time frame (often 24 hours) to create a software or hardware project from scratch. Maker culture is the technology-centric extension of do-it-yourself culture.

Our focus is on providing a collaborative environment for teams of students to create their own projects either at events or on their own. We will achieve this primarily through the attendance and organization of hackathons, workshops to prepare students to work in a team environment, and presentations of student projects throughout the academic year.
