Join us for 24 hours as we build apps, hardware and more!

Join us for 24 hours as we build apps, hardware and more at the beautiful Kean University campus. We will provide a comfortable and enlivening atmosphere for you to build out progressive, innovative, and crazy ideas.

At HackKean, you’ll meet fellow hackers, learn new technologies, and hone your skills alongside seasoned mentors. We'll have free food, swag, workshops, mentorship, prizes, games, and more. Don’t have a team, or even an idea? Don’t worry! We’ll give you the tools to build something incredible.

Whether you're a seasoned hackathon goer or just getting started — we’d love to see you here!
