All students are welcome to participate in the Burton D. Morgan Foundation and Kent State University first-ever collegiate Aviation Hackathon. College students 18 and older from any university or area of study are invited to participate in #SkyHack. During the weekend-long event students will establish interdisciplinary teams, innovate, produce prototypes and pitch their ideas to a panel of judges for a chance to win financial awards and other incentives.
The Burton D. Morgan grand prize is $10,000. In addition, throughout the weekend, five challenges related to the aviation/aeronautics industry will be presented and each challenge stream winner will be awarded $1,000.00.
