Macathon 2014

It's on! Macathon 2014 will be held February 28–March 1 in the Olin-Rice Science Center.

Macalester students have formed teams of 3-6 participants for Macathon, Macalester's overnight innovation and technology contest with over $2,000 in cash prizes. The three teams that come up with the most innovative tech-enabled product or service for either the commercial or nonprofit sector win.

From 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28 through 6 p.m. Saturday, March 1, participating teams will develop ideas, computer and mobile applications, demos and presentations that will be judged by a team of alumni investment professionals, technologists, and entrepreneurs.
