Build. Learn. Grow.

RevolutionUC is a student hackathon in which we invite students from across the midwest to partake in a weekend of code, community, and self-improvement. You don't have to attend the University of Cincinnati and you don't have to be a computer science major or engineering student. We're looking for people who share our passion to do awesome things with technology.

RevolutionUC is open to all college and high school students 16 or older. Before any hacking begins we require you to sign a waiver, which will be emailed to all registered participants prior to the hackathon. If you are under 18 you will need a parent or legal guardian to sign the waiver.
