Innovating Through the Pandemic
February 26-28, 2021 | CEWIT
The Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT) hosts its fifth annual student hackathon bringing over 300 regional hackers, industry sponsorship commitments, and hands-on tech talks and workshops together virtually for a two-day technical challenge awarding over $5K in prizes. The theme this year is Innovating Through the Pandemic. Technology has become more important than ever this past year and we believe students can create incredible new innovations to further enhance the quality of life with technology.
The two-day digital hack culminating at the end of George Washington's birthday week is designed in collaboration with our core industry partners, sponsors, and member entrepreneurs to select scenarios that will have a direct, real-world application to their product portfolios. All students must pre-register in advance.

2020 Student Hacker Testimonials
" One of the most well-organized hackathons and keeps getting better every year!" Ian, Johnson and Wales University
"Hack@CEWIT was a great experience. We built a productivity app for kids called "Diego the Dog". Most of our team came into this hackathon with zero Flutter experience. Through a combination of YouTube tutorials and online examples, we increased our Flutter knowledge tenfold. Hack@CEWIT just might have started something really big for us!" Stony Brook University Student
"Hack@CEWIT is an amazing experience to learn & make use of new technology & make new friends along the way!" John, Stony Brook University
