Revolution UC is open to all high school, undergraduate and graduate students, including freshmen! You don't have to attend the University of Cincinnati; you don't have to be a computer science major or even an engineering student, though you should have some coding or engineering experience. You aren't required to have ever attended a hackathon before: we will have tech talks beforehand so you can ramp up quickly. You can come with a team or come alone. We will have sessions to help people find team members and/or form teams, as well as an idea workshops to help people think of ideas to work on for the hackathon.
