About

Spartan Hackers exists to foster a community of technological innovation, collaboration, and creation at Michigan State University.


Spartan Hackers hosts workshops to build skills within the community and organizes efforts to attend and represent Michigan State University at collegiate hackathons around the nation.


A hackathon provides the opportunity for participants to demonstrate their knowledge in computer software and hardware development by building an application, a “hack”, and compete for prizes.
