Hacktorials are workshops that provide instruction and insights into various engaging and career-building topics including programming, engineering, and design.
Hackathon Trips
Hackathons are 24-36 hour competitions where people come together to develop and work on projects that solve a particular problem, and potentially win prizes from corporate sponsors. Buses are provided to Hackathons across the East Coast and the Midwest.

Hacktorials

Hacktorials are workshops that allow students to explore a range of technological concepts including programming, artificial intelligence, machine learning, engineering, and graphic design. They are often student-led; however, guest speakers outside of Terrapin Hackers run hacktorials as well.

The difficulty and skill-level for each Hacktorial varies, but most Hacktorials are designed with beginners in mind.

If you're interested in doing a Hacktorial, drop us a line.

Bring your laptop to all events!

Hackathons

Hackathons are creative/engineering competitions where contestants have 24-36 hours to build something interesting.

These events are open to people of any skill level or field of study, and are very accommodating to beginners.

Most every weekend, members of Terrapin Hackers pack buses to hackathons, and make awesome projects. We won the first season of Major League Hacking, and placed second in the second season.

Sandbox

Beginning in the Fall Semester of 2018 Terrapin Hackers has joined forces with the Sandbox, a student ran maker space that is located at CSIC3107.

In addition, we will be having directors hours at the Sandbox from:
  • Monday and Wednesday: 6pm-8pm
