On March 6, more than 450 students from colleges around the nation will descend on the University of Arizona campus armed with sleeping bags, toothbrushes and most importantly, a computer. For 36 hours, students will team up in small groups to “hack” solutions to difficult technical problems.

Hack Arizona, a first-ever hackathon hosted by the University of Arizona, will bring together the most talented undergraduate and graduate students from the burgeoning tech ecosystem in the Southwest and across the country.

Raytheon will be the event’s corporate sponsor, providing donations of hardware, mentoring students, acting as judges and awarding completed projects based on best implementation.

Undergraduate- or graduate-level future technologists can stop by the Raytheon booth in the University of Arizona Science and Engineering Library to learn more about the company, meet young engineers and interview for internship and permanent roles from 3-9 p.m. on Friday, March 6 and 9 a.m.-6 p.m. on March 7.

Students can apply for the competition through the hackathon website.
