at Hack The Hammer II
McMaster Innovation Park - December 14-15, 2019

Hamilton's first high-school hackathon.

As a group of innovative high-school students, we decided to bring our passion for all to enjoy. With over 200 high-school hackers all over Ontario and only 24 hours to spend, anything is limitless. Our third season is here, with an experience never thought before.

This is Hack The Hammer.

Don't worry! You're on the same boat. We have mentors, representatives from companies, (and some cool organizers too) to help you brainstorm!.

Unfortunately this year, we won't have a hardware lab to work with, but you are free to bring your own! If you are in need of some Arduinos or Raspberry Pis, send us a line and we can arrange something for you (first come, first serve).

No. In the interest of fairness, participants should not work on their hack before the hackathon starts. This will be strictly enforced, as if not followed, you will be disqualified.

There is no guarantee on travel reiumbursements. If you would like travel reiumbursements for GO Bus/Greyhound transportation, please email here for further inquiry. You can also apply for Execute Big's Travel Grant here, from our friends over at Hack Club, so you can join us without having to pay for travel!
