❓What is a Hackathon❓
A Hackathon is a competition where people come together to build and design something cool! You do not need any programming experience to do well!

This is a great way for all high school students (years 9-12) to learn new skills and create a product prototype + a business model. This Hackathon is a unique opportunity to gain an insight into the creative applications of STEM and show you a taste of what working in the tech field is like.
We have partnered with companies such as IBM, Blackbird VC, Creatable.tech and more to bring you the best quality hackathon specifically geared towards high school students. You’ll be able to participate in sponsor-led mentoring sessions as well as multiple workshops through the Hackathon to ensure that you have the skills needed to excel in your product creation and business model.

CSESoc is the principal representative body for computing students at UNSW. We cater to 4000+ CSE students and are there to fulfill the specific social needs of those individuals. We also promote computing in all its forms through technical and non-technical oriented events throughout the year. We are here to make sure you are having a good time, no strings attached We like to have fun whether it be hanging out, working on interesting projects, or throwing parties. These activities can only happen if CSE students, such as yourself, help make it happen.
Volunteers run the entire society from the bottom to the top. We know that some of you tend to be interested in computing, so we try to cater to your interests by holding technical events that complement your studies. These events are to help teach you some extra computing skills and to keep you updated on what's new and interesting in the industry. CSESoc caters to all students of CSE including postgrads, and soon to be grads. This means that we try to hold some industry-specific events for the students that are going into the IT field. We try to make sure that you guys are aware and excited about starting work in the IT industry.
