Long term goals: We want to interest more CS students in Hack UMass. In the past, it has been more systems/ECE oriented, and in the future, we’d like it to be more of an all-around hackathon. You can read more about Hack UMass at
We need volunteers for various jobs relating to Hack UMass. This is a great resume-building opportunity for volunteer work within the field of CS.
Inquiries about volunteering can be sent to’re also talking about ideas for an outreach program. This program would teach teachers how to do intro classes in Scratch. You can read about Scratch, a programming language for kids at
