ArchHacks is a hackathon hosted at Washington University in St. Louis Oct. 27-29 for students of all backgrounds with a passion for technology, design, and, most importantly, building things. ArchHacks brings together more than 350 students from around the country for 48 hours of collaboration, problem solving, and building. We will provide a unique opportunity for students to work with resources and companies they cannot find anywhere else, and our theme, HealthTech, means that the products our participants create will make a real difference. You will have the opportunity to make invaluable connections with corporations, collaborate with friends and, most importantly, develop something that will contribute to the HealthTech community.


Health is no longer limited to the realm of doctors and pharmacists. Today the health industry has expanded to incorporate engineering, technology, digital design, and more. Today health is the interface you use to schedule doctors appointments, the technology that organizes the operation of all the computers in a massive medical facility, the Nest CO and fire alarm in your house, the next big thing in 3D printing biological materials, and more. The room for future innovation is infinite. We have chosen this theme for ArchHacks because the HealthTech industry is growing exponentially with some of the most innovative technology available today, and we as college students will be the driving force behind this development.
