What is HAkron 3000?

HAkron 3000 is a hackathon hosted by The University of Akron. Completely student run, so you know it's going to be good.

Come ready to learn new things, make new friends, and create something so awesome that even your great aunt Dorothy will be interested in it.

If you want to make something cool, this is the place to do it! Not only do we want you to succeed, we're going to help you do it.

ok great, but who are you guys?

HAkron knows hackathons. With this being our fourth hackathon our team has put together, we've got the experience necessary to deliver the best event possible!

Don't just take our word for it; See what the Akron Beacon Journal, and UA's website had to say about our last hackathon.


Hackathons are weekend long events where students form teams to create an innovative project and gain real-world experience. Hacking, in this case, means swiftly and skillfully creating a real and usable application. Hackathons bring in a wide range of majors, mainly consisting of Mechanical, Computer, and Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science. At the end of the 24 hours, the best projects are awarded awesome prizes!

Any currently enrolled college student, or anyone who has graduated within 12 months can participate. High School students are also eligible with the proper release forms. Here's how: First, you sign up! You can sign up by pressing the register button on the top of the website. Second, you show up on the day of the event, ready to create something awesome! It is advised that you bring any hardware that you would like to use in your hack. As well as a computer and all the necessary cables. We'll also have some rentable hardware courtesy of MLH Hardware Lab!

Student ID, clothes, toiletries, hacker setup, an idea, and anything else you need to function independently for 24 hours. Oh, and a smile!

Nothing! Zip! Nada! Attending is absolutely FREE! Free swag, free food, what more could you want?!

Nope! If you do not have a team we will help you find one. (Max of 4 people per team)
