What is a Makeathon?

The UGAHacks Makeathon is a brand new event from our team. This year we are focusing on encouraging sustainability initiatives from our hackers with a product-focused event. With various workshops, challenges, and talks we hope to inspire hackers to create projects that are designed to solve the world’s most pressing sustainability needs in just 24 hours!

Come make, create, all while being sustainable!
