Endless Space for Innovation

SBUHacks is a place where students are challenged to further what they know by doing projects on what they are passionate about. Spending time on projects outside the classroom is the best way to not only learn what you love, but find new interests. In a universe of infinite possibilities, you have 24 hours to innovate and show us what you got!
