What is Hackathon?

A Hackathon is an exciting and intense event where teams of innovators come together to collaborate, brainstorm, and develop creative solutions to real-world problems. Participants, often students with a passion for technology, work tirelessly over a set period, typically 24 to 48 hours, to design and build projects ranging from software applications to hardware prototypes.

These events are not just about competition; they’re about fostering creativity, teamwork, and learning. Participants have the opportunity to leverage their technical skills, learn new technologies, and network with like-minded individuals. Hackathons often feature mentorship sessions, workshops, and access to cutting-edge tools and resources.

At BEST, we believe in the power of Hackathons to inspire innovation and drive progress. We organize and support these events to provide students with a platform to showcase their talents, tackle real-world challenges, and make a positive impact on society.
