What is NuevaHacks this year?

UPDATE: Due to a variety of reasons, we have decided to postpone the hackathon a few weeks till the beginning of summer (TBD on a weekend in mid or end of June). We believe that doing it in the summer will be more exciting, enjoyable, and open for everyone. We will let you know more details as they come.

After the success of last year's worldwide hackathon with over 350 students from 8 countries participating, we are back again. In the past year, our world around us has changed drastically due to the pandemic. Industries are being disrupted from Online Education to Healthcare to Climate. 


For this year's hackathon, we are focusing on THREE themes: 

1) Education2) Health Care, and 3) Climate Change
