We want to prove that small schools can do big things.
We’re a team of student organizers from Philly’s three best liberal arts colleges - Swarthmore, Haverford, and Bryn Mawr. For the first time, we’re bringing together 100 new and experienced hackers for a weekend of hacking.
Our goal is an inclusive space for people of all backgrounds and majors to work on amazing projects for a weekend. Seasoned hackers in top CS programs will mentor novice hackers as they team up to create web, mobile, and hardware projects from the ground-up. A series of workshops throughout the weekend will help hackers learn to use specific platforms and get started on their projects.
The liberal arts are often overlooked in the tech world. Hack the TriCo will give liberal arts students the chance to combine our technical expertise with our creativity, analytical skills, and interdisciplinary thinking. At Hack the TriCo, small schools will bring big ideas to the table.
