RevolutionUC is a student hackathon in which we invite students from across the midwest to partake in a weekend of code, community, and self-improvement. You don't have to attend the University of Cincinnati and you don't have to be a computer science major or engineering student. We're looking for people who share our passion to do awesome things with technology.
- Participants: Any University or High School Student that has registered for RevolutionUC. You must be present to be eligible.
- Teams: 1-4 Members
Build something awesome. The hack must be a finished submission and have not been worked on prior to RevolutionUC.
