Carroll County Hackathon

Ever wondered what’s possible in a weekend? We are going to find out in the 2nd Annual Carroll County Hackathon!

Teams of 3-5 high school or college students will compete to see who can build the best application. Bring a team or come solo and find a team at the start of the competition. 14 teams competed last year!

Don't know how to code? That is okay! No experience necessary. PLUS, great hackathon teams need diverse skill sets, including graphic design, business, marketing, and communication. The Hackaton Workshop will you provide you a crash course an all aspects of bringing an app to life.

Participants should come ready to identify a problem, design a solution, and build an app - all in a weekend! These apps may go on to change the world or maybe just Carroll County.

The Carroll County Hackathon is hosted by MAGIC. It is sponsored by McDaniel College, Carroll Community College and Bytelion.
