FEBRUARY 7-8, 2020
MOUNT ALLISON UNIVERSITY

Think it. Learn it. Build it.

MtA Hacks is a two-day computer science conference hosted at Mount Allison University from February 7-8. The weekend will gather 75 university and high school students from across the maritimes to build projects, attend workshops, and meet industry experts. Teams will brainstorm, build, and pitch projects related to this year’s theme: Games and Education. We’ll bring in judges from across North America to pick a winning group—last year’s judges came from Google, Dell, RideCo, and Tantramar Interactive. By the end of the day, you’ll have learned new tools, added a project to your resume, and made 74 new friends. Oh, and by the way, there will be free food, swag, and cash prizes!

Registration for the 2020 conference is open until January 17th. If you are an inexperienced programmer, our team will support you throughout the conference. We encourage participants of all skill levels to attend.
