    What is BroncoHack?

    BroncoHack, the OMIS Student Network's second annual hackathon, is a competition where teams of students use their computer programming and business knowledge to create a program or application in 24 hours. At the end of the competition, teams will present their solutions to a panel of judges in hopes of winning a variety of prizes.

    Addressing the theme of social justice

    BroncoHack offers competitors the chance to not only build a project that is innovative in the arenas of business and technology, but one that addresses our theme of social justice. We want our participants to look at the broader impact of their work. The OMIS Student Network doesn't support the idea that technology has reached the zenith of its use when someone is willing to pay the creator for it. We want our participants to examine the social injustices that are present in our world and to try their hand at reversing them through the power of applied technology.

    What should I create?

    It's totally up to you! Sponsors may pose prompts to give competing teams an opportunity to win additional prizes, but it's completely optional. We don't want to limit your creativity, so feel free to create whatever you'd like!

    When does the event start and end?

    Arrive at Santa Clara University's Lucas Hall on May 2, 2015 at 3:00PM. The event should end by 3:00PM on May 3.

    Do I sign up as a team or individually?

    Sign up is done individually. If you do not have a team, we will find one for you. We recommend that each group consist of four to five members of different backgrounds in business and engineering/computer science.

    What should I bring?

    Just the equipment that you think you'll need to build your idea. Food, Wi-Fi, entertainment, swag, and outlets are all provided.

    Who can come?

    BroncoHack is open to high school, undergraduate, and graduate students from any accredited institution.

    How are hacks presented?

    At the end of the competition, students will present their ideas to a panel of judges. Judges consist of industry professionals and professors.
