During 36 caffeine-filled, sleepless hours, students from the University of Tennessee and elsewhere will brainstorm, build, break, test, and deploy whatever they can imagine, for the chance to win amazing prizes.
There will also be plenty of time to interact with professional mentors and engineers, meet recruiters, and listen to great tech talks and tutorials from sponsors.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, VolHacks V will be hosted virtually! Come and hack in the comfort of your own home!
