Presented by HackGT and Georgia Tech's BME Learning Commons, hackers create solutions for health technologies

HackGT, in partnership with BME Learning Commons, is excited to host our first ever Healthtech Hackathon!

Students from the Atlanta area, of all majors, are welcome to apply.

With our resources -- mentors, workshops, and a place to work -- we look forward to seeing your ideas come to life.

During this event, you will be working with teams of up to four people to create a minimum viable product or a prototype. Your project can be either hardware or software focused, or a good mix of the two.

This year’s event is for 18 years or older college students in the Atlanta area.




Judging Criteria

  • Technology
    How technically impressive was the hack? Was the technical problem the team tackled difficult? Did it use a particularly clever technique or did it integrate different components in clever ways? Did the technology involved make you go "wow"?
  • Design
    Did the team put thought into the user experience? How well designed is the interface? For a website, this might be about how beautiful the CSS or graphics are. For a hardware project, it might be more about how good the human-device interaction is.
  • Medical Impact
    Does the solution have potential to make an impact in the respective field?
  • Innovation
    How innovative is the solution? How different is it from existing solutions to this problem?
