See Info


Bath Hack 2021 is a 24 hour virtual hackathon taking place on the 10th-11th April. The event is exclusive to University of Bath students where teams of up to 4 are given 24 hours to create any system they want. Teams can then submit their systems to be judged for specific prize tracks for a chance of winning an exclusive prize!

New to hackathons or programming? No problem! Our industry partners will be running educational seminars that can teach you the basics for you to be able to create a system with your teammates. There will also be Backslash Build running a virtual support desk throughout the event so that they can provide you with the help you need to make your system a reality.

Not able to sign up as a full team? We will be running a team creation event before the hackathon so that you can find teammates and introduce yourselves to each other before you need to start coding.

Sign-ups are now closed. Please email if you missed the signup window and don't want to miss out.
