All members of the Tufts Community (and friends) are invited. Polyhack is not a traditional hackathon -- we want to cross borders with other disciplines of thought and learn from one another. If you aren't a member of the Tufts community, you must be explicitly invited.
Bring a valid student ID for admission and a laptop for hacking and/or designing something together. We’ll be providing pretty much everything else—stickers, snacks, and more!
Tufts Polyhack is specifically designed to accommodate all levels. If you've never been to a hackathon, or are just getting stared coding don't fear! We will be holding info sessions, team-finding events, and even assign experienced mentors to lead your team.
Hackathons are more fun when you work with others, so we encourage people to form teams beforehand or find teams at the event. Teams are capped at 5 people. Your team can be larger, but smaller teams will take precedence and we'll only guarantee prizes for up to 5 people.
Polyhack is about meeting new people, and in that spirit, we'll have group formation events towards the beginning of the hackathon. We also have a mentorship program that'll assign experienced mentors to lead your team.
Don't hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to answer any questions and concerns you might have.
