This year, HackeRam will bring a new and refreshing theme to the table to attract a larger and more diverse set of students. This coming October, we’ve decided not to pursue a focus on the theme, so that participants can create a more variety of projects and build a diverse community.


We have an open theme this year, so let your imagination run wild. Feel free to submit any project theme you want!
