CLARKATHON

TIE is thrilled to announce Clark University’s first Hackathon – CLARKATHON 2022! The event will feature alumni in tech who will mentor teams for a span of a week to create a real-world full stack project. Participants will learn how to solve real world problems using hands-on engineering approaches.

2022 THEME:
SOCIAL IMPACT

The theme for Clarkathon this year is Social Impact. All participants are required to work on projects that align with the theme in order to qualify for the prizes. In essence, the definition of social impact means any significant or positive changes that solve or at least address social injustice and challenges.
