Hack AE is a 24-hour creative coding event that strives to bring America East students together to engage in collaborative computer programming.
Now in its second year, Hack AE is a 24-hour civic hackathon organized by the America East Academic Consortium, the academic initiative of the America East Conference. The event is designed to bring America East students together to build software and hardware projects that address the real-world challenges facing our neighborhoods, cities, states, and country, with a specific emphasis on issues pertaining to cybersecurity, education, environmental sustainability, and health and wellness.
