  • About the event

    Hack the Hammer will be Hamilton’s first, overnight, 24 hour hackathon targeted specifically to high school students. It aims to provide students in the City of Hamilton, the Greater Toronto  rea and the rest of Ontario with opportunities in the field of technology. On February 3rd to 4th, we’re bringing together over 140 of the brightest minds in the region for a weekend of creativity, innovation, collaboration and rapid learning. Participants ( hackers ) will get the entire 24 hours to invent and build a software or hardware project, and then show it off to a panel of judges as well as their fellow hackers.
    As a high school hackathon, our aim is to inspire more high school students to explore innovative careers in technology. Your company can help us show them what it is all about!

    Why should you sponsor?

    Connect with young computer scientists: For many participants, Hack the Hammer will be their first hackathon, a special and unforgettable experience. This is a unique opportunity for you to make an early impression on them, inspiring the next generation of programmers. You will also be able to interact with high school students who have been to and won prior hackathons, are winners of programming contests, and are currently looking for more opportunities in the field. We encourage you to recruit these students, negotiating internship positions with them at your respective companies.


    Branding and Exposure: Hack the Hammer is a wonderful opportunity to expose your company and their technologies to the world. If you want to expand your influence and expedite your company’s brand recognition, want to show off your company’s awesome hardware or  PIs, or just make more future leaders in the world of technology know about your company, you’ve come to the right place. Your company will be recognized for supporting the next generation of developers and makers, and students here are more likely to continue using the technologies you present to them in the future.


    Feedback and adoption: Hackathons are the ideal environment to put your products to work. It allows real-time observation of potential real-life adoption of your product – the ultimate user testing. Watching hackers work on your product will become an invaluable part of your fine-tuning product functionality and documentation for a better user experience. Best of all, we provide a 200-person-strong user pool with innovative minds that test for robustness of your product.
