DeltaHacks IV




Thanks to all Participants!


DeltaHacks IV

Challenge outline

DeltaHacks IV is McMaster’s annual student hackathon for change. We want to encourage students in all fields of study to come together to build real world applications that create positive change. The difference between DeltaHacks and other hackathons is that we embrace elements of design thinking to make “hacks” that solve real world problems.

Event description

The ultimate goal behind this hackathon is to include, not only the engineering and computer science students, but all talented individuals from all backgrounds to collaborate, create, and bring ideas to life. We want you to shoot for the stars.

This year, DeltaHacks will be a 500-participant event taking place from Jan 27th-28th. We hope to inspire students to hack for positive changes that align with their passions - whether it's environment, health, inequality, education, etc. And hence the name “delta” - as “Δ” stands for change.

DeltaHacks is extremely beginner friendly, and our mentors would love to help you execute a project where you have an idea, but aren’t sure how to go about executing it.


Once the idea generation is done, there will be an open mic and networking time to find a team. Everyone accepted will also be invited to the DeltaHacks' Slack prior to the hackathon in order to discuss ideas.

Deadline to apply

The deadline is on December 15th at 11:59 PM!
