PackHacks is a hackathon that will be held overnight from April 21st-22nd in Engineering Building 2 at NC State. A hackathon is a 24-hour competition in which students work in teams to develop a technical project of their own choosing. Common projects include making an app, creating a website, or building/modifying a physical device, but teams are free to come up with something completely unique! There will also be lots of workshops (app development, web development, AI, crypto, etc.) at the event for both less experienced students and those looking to pick up valuable skills.   Most importantly, the event is FREE for all students to attend! Participants will receive food, shirts, swag, and resources for their projects, and the top teams will receive prizes! Registration is now open at - if you have any questions, please email
