Frequently Asked Questions.

We like to think of hackathons as “invention marathons.” You (the hacker) will spend 36 hours building projects (hacks) in teams of 1 - 4 people. Come with an idea, and we’ll provide everything you need to turn that idea into reality — hardware, mentors, food, you name it.

PickHacks aims to bring a new and refreshing theme every year to attract a variety of students and projects. This year, our focus is athletics; from health technology to sports analytics, the possibilities are endless.

No need to worry! We’ll be running workshops to help beginners learn new technologies and get you started. We’ll also have mentors on hand to help you out in the process.

Of course! We have team building and design thinking workshops planned to help get your creative juices flowing.

Yes: we follow the Major League Hacking Code of Conduct.

If you’re enrolled in high school, we’d still love to have you! We’ll have forms closer to the event date that we’ll need you to fill out to make sure you’re all good to hack.

If you’re around the Midwest area, we’re more than likely sending a bus to a campus near you; we’ll release schedules closer to the event. You’re also more than welcome to drive!

We'll be sending buses to the following universities: Mizzou, Truman, Purdue, SIUE, SLU, UIUC, UMSL, and WashU.
If you do not attend or live near one of those schools, we will be evaluating reimbursement on a case by case basis. That being said, if you have any concerns or questions about travel, please email us at pickhacks@mst.edu!

Zero. Zilch. Nada. Thanks to our generous sponsors, the entire event is free!

Of course! With over $10,000 in prizes, you'll have the opportunity to compete in a variety of challenges for a chance to win iPads, GoPros, DJI Drones, Xbox Ones, and much more. We'll also have prizes for various events throughout the weekend! You can view an up to date prize list on our DevPost.

We’ll have dedicated sleeping areas for hackers. There will be a limited supply of air mattresses available, but bring a sleeping bag if you can!

No problem! Feel free to send us a message at pickhacks@mst.edu.
