SpartaHack 2017 is Michigan State University's third annual student-run hackathon. On the weekend of January 20th, we're bringing together 500 students of all skill levels and disciplines to get creative with tech, connect with peers and professionals, and forget the words "I can't." We're excited to see what you will create!

SpartaHack is a 36-hour programming marathon and competition held at Michigan State University on the weekend of January 20th-22nd. We provide tons of meals, snacks, nap spaces, and swag, free of cost so all you need to worry about is making something cool.

Definitely not! No programming experience is necessary; we have workshops and mentors at the event to help you learn about a variety of topics.
Anyone who was a student during the 2016-2017 academic year! Graduate students, undergrads, and high-school students from any field of study are welcome.
Whatever you want to! A lot of people use hackathons as an opportunity to learn a new piece of tech, while others work with tools they know already to build something more challenging. You can check out last year’s projects at here.
Sure! Teams can have up to 4 students.
We plan to! We’ll have more details about our travel policy soon.
