WHACK is where students from all backgrounds can come together into Wellesley's community and create something.

WHACK is Wellesley’s annual hackathon. A hackathon is a grand gathering of people who build tech projects in teams. They think out of the box, learn new technologies, ask questions, make mistakes, discover new languages, and have fun! You’ll enjoy a weekend of awesome tech, food, swag, prizes, workshops, and mini-events while learning from distinguished speakers, inspiring mentors, and peers from over 35 different colleges. We consider WHACK a success if you make new connections and gain skills that will stay with you long after WHACK is over.
Hope to see you there!
